Which Player has the most Premier League hattricks?
Which Player has the most Premier League hattricks is one of the topics we should always talk about. The Premier League has been home to some of the deadliest strikers the world has ever produced.
While scoring goals is a task reserved for strikers, midfielders, defenders and even keepers have proved before that they can score goals too.
With strikers tasked with bagging goals for their teams, others have consistently found the onion bag frequently in an area where scoring three goals in a match have been hailed. So who are these players who have bagged more hattricks in the Premier League?
10. Robin van Persie – former Arsenal & Manchester United scored (5 hat-tricks)
Robin van Persie scored five hat-tricks during his time in England where he featured for both Arsenal and Manchester United.
The Dutchman’s three goals in Manchester United’s victory over Aston Villa in 2013 were particularly memorable as he helped Sir Alex Ferguson‘s side clinch the title in this fixture with the player winning the golden boot with the strikes.
9. Dimitar Berbatov – Fulham, Tottenham Hotspur & Manchester United scored (5 hat-tricks)
Just as Van Persie, Berbatov was a darling to the Old Trafford faithful after crossing over from Spurs.
The forward is above van Persie on the list due to the fact that he played fewer games in the Premier League (229 compared to 280).
8. Luis Suarez – Former Liverpool striker scored (6 hat-tricks)
Suarez set the Premier League ablaze while in the books of Liverpool before moving to Barcelona in 2014. One of the Uruguayan’s most memorable displays came in the Reds’ clash with Norwich City in 2012 as he bagged three fantastic goals at Carrow Road.
7. Wayne Rooney – Former Everton & Manchester United scored (7 hat-tricks)
After bursting onto the scene at Everton, the former England international went on to become Manchester United’s all-time leading goal-scorer as he found the back of the net on 253 occasions for the club.
6: Michael Owen-Liverpool, Manchester United, Newcastle United & Stoke City (8 hat-tricks)
Michael Owen played for four different sides in the Premier League during his career as he made 326 appearances in this division. He bagged eight hat-tricks of the 150 top-flight goals he scored for the clubs.
5. Thierry Henry – Former Arsenal hitman scored (8 hat-tricks)
The former France international managed to score eight top-flight hat-tricks in 258 appearances for the Gunners.
4. Harry Kane – Tottenham Hotspur & Norwich City (8 hat-tricks)
Harry Kane is currently above Henry and Owen on this list due to the fact that he has played a fewer number of Premier League games compared to this particular duo (245).
The forward has already netted eight hat-tricks during his career and will be determined to add to this total in the coming years as he is being linked with staying in the Premier League.
3. Robbie Fowler – Liverpool, Leeds United, Manchester City & Blackburn Rovers (9 hat-tricks)
Like his former team-mate Owen, Fowler also represented four teams in the Premier League as he featured for Liverpool, Leeds United, Manchester City, and Blackburn Rovers during his career.
The forward managed to score an impressive total of nine hat-tricks at this level in 379 appearances.
2. Alan Shearer – Former Newcastle United & Blackburn Rovers scored (11 hat-tricks)
After helping Blackburn Rovers win the Premier League title in 1995, Alan Shearer decided to move to his boyhood club Newcastle United where he continued his fine form in front of goal.
Only one player beats his hat-trick tally after scoring 260 goals in the English top division.
1. Sergio Aguero – Manchester City Legend scored (12 hat-tricks)
Sergio Aguero tops this particular list as the Argentine was able to score an incredible total of 12 hat-tricks during his time at Manchester City.
The forward who has since joined Barcelona also scored the most goals by a foreign player in the top-flight (184), broke Shearer’s record last year in the Citizens’ 6-1 victory over Aston Villa.
