Every Premier League club's last hat-trick scorer in the English top flight

  • Kobe Tong

Manchester United ender their hat-trick hoodoo thanks to Anthony Martial on Wednesday night.

The Red Devils had gone an astonishing seven years without a treble in the Premier League with Robin van Persie's iconic performance against Aston Villa in 2013 proving the latest of the bunch.

But Martial changed that with his Man of the Match display upon the visit of Sheffield United, scoring two goals true of a number nine and rounding things off with a delightful chip.

Martial's first treble in the famous red jersey sees him join the likes of Wayne Rooney, Andy Cole, Dwight Yorke, Cristiano Ronaldo and Ruud van Nistelrooy in the exclusive club.

But considering United are one of the biggest and richest clubs in the world, it's pretty surprising to learn that they went so long without a hat-trick, so how uncommon actually is it?

Premier League hat-tricks

Well, the team at talkSPORT sought to answer that question by working their way through all 20 Premier League teams and seeing when their last hat-trick in the top flight transpired.

For the most part, it goes to show that United's barren spell really was anomalous, but the likes of Brighton and Sheffield Untied themselves having decade-long droughts will ease their worries.

So, without further ado, check out the 20 players currently holding their own as each Premier League club's last hat-trick scorer:


Aaron Ramsey vs Everton – February 2018


Aston Villa

Christian Benteke vs QPR – April 2015


Callum Wilson vs Huddersfield – November 2017

Brighton & Hove Albion

Gordon Smith vs Coventry City – October 1980

United breaking their jinx

If you're seeing a lot of '2019' and '2020' labels, then you aren't alone and it doesn't exactly reflect well on United's strikers since Sir Alex Ferguson hung up his hairdryer.

However, proceedings at Old Trafford are visibly improving under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and perhaps Martial breaking the jinx will open the floodgates at the club.

Besides, you'd like to hope there'd be something of a 'London bus' situation when you see the likes of Norwich, Watford and Bournemouth having notched hat-tricks in the last half-decade. 


As for Gordon Smith being Brighton's top dog for 40 years, we don't know whether to be impressed or horrified.
