Is Andy Reid the fattest player to score a Premier League goal?

When Reid scored the Black Cats’ winner against West Ham there were none of the somersault celebrations which followed Kenwyne Jones’ opener (although if you look closely Grant Leadbitter does have a crafty grope of his jangling man boobs).
Clearly it doesn’t affect his ability to find the back of the net, but by Premier League standards Reid is absolutely huge. Have you seen bigger?
