0

Craig Hignett scored the first ever Premier League goal at the Riverside Stadium as Middlesbrough beat Chelsea 2-0 in their first game inside their new stadium on Saturday 26 August 1995.

Jan Åge Fjørtoft scored the other goal for Boro that day.

The North Yorkshire club were newly-promoted from the Football League First Division that season, having won the second tier at their old stadium, Ayresome Park. Middlesbrough’s first game back in the top flight after a two-year absence was a 1-1 draw at Arsenal the week before.
