Swansea City's Ki Sun-yueng.

Swansea midfielder Ki Sung-yueng needed just 30 seconds to achieve something no other Premier League player had managed this campaign in his side's meeting with Bournemouth, as he received the quickest booking of the season.

A nasty tackle on Ryan Fraser in midfield earned the Korean his super-quick yellow card.

The 27-year-old last started for Swansea in its 3-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester United on November 6, but returned to the starting XI in caretaker manager Alan Curtis' first game in charge following Bob Bradley's dismissal this week.

This weekend's caution was Ki's first booking of the season, the midfielder having gone without an official warning in his previous 11 Premier League outings.
