5. Fastest Premier League hat trick

Sadio Mane – 2 min 56 sec

Sadio Mane played for Premier League club Southampton before becoming a star at Liverpool and now currently playing for German club Bayern Munich. During his time at St Mary’s Stadium on 15th May 2015, Sadio Mane scored a hattrick in just two minutes and 56 seconds when Southampton defeated Aston Villa 6-1. He started scoring in the 13th minute of the match and had a hat trick to his name by the 16th minute.

Mane currently holds the record for the fastest hat trick in the Premier League. He broke the previously held record by Liverpool player Robbie Fowler, who scored a hattrick against Arsenal in just 4 minutes 33 seconds on August 24, 1994. This record stood for 20 years before Mane broke it. It seems this time it will take a lot more than 20 years to break Mane’s record.
