Who has scored the most hat tricks in the Premier League?

The Premier League has hosted some truly iconic strikers since the competition's inception back in the 1990s.

Players like Alan Shearer and Andy Cole set the goalscoring gold standard, while modern day stars like Harry Kane and Mohamed Salah continue to show their quality in England's top flight.

And then, of course, there's Erling Haaland, who looks dangerously capable of breaking every single record that has been set before him.

Here's the Premier League's hat trick history.

Who has scored the most hat tricks in the Premier League?

The record for most hat tricks scored in Premier League history is held by Sergio Aguero, who racked up 12 trebles during his time with Manchester City to overtake Alan Shearer's 11 at the top of the leaderboard.

Shearer is followed by Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler in third with nine, while Thierry Henry, Harry Kane and Michael Owen are joint fourth with eight each.

Can Erling Haaland catch Aguero's hat trick record?

After just eight Premier League games, Haaland has already racked up three hat tricks - each coming at the Etihad.

He also did that in three consecutive home league games, becoming the first player ever to record the feat.

The Norway striker is already knocking on the door of the top ten, with Dimitar Berbatov, Andy Cole, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Robin van Persie and Ian Wright - who each scored five hat tricks - in his sights at this early stage of the season.

What was the quickest Premier League hat trick?

The quickest hat trick in Premier League history came when Sadio Mane netted three goals in 2 minutes 56 seconds during Southampton's 6-1 thumping of Aston Villa, beating Robbie Fowler's previous best by over a minute.

Mane scored another treble for the Saints a year later when they shocked Manchester City 4-2, but he never managed one in the Premier League for Liverpool. He did, however, net a Champions League hat trick when Liverpool won 5-0 at Porto in 2018.
