The 27 Premier League players who have scored four goals in a single match

Shearer has scored four goals in one PL game

Michail Antonio condemned Norwich City to relegation on Saturday afternoon, scoring FOUR goals to send the Canaries back down to the Championship. 

His first and fourth goals were tap-ins from close range, while both his second and third were headers. 

It was actually Antonio's first senior hat-trick, let alone the first time he's scored four times in a single game. 

As impressive as it is, there are actually 26 other players who have managed to do the same in the Premier League era. 

Still, Antonio certainly joins an esteemed company, with the likes of Thierry Henry, Alan Shearer and Sergio Aguero all featuring on the list.

26. Mohamed Salah | Liverpool 5-0 Watford | March 2018
27. Michail Antonio | West Ham 4-0 Norwich | July 2020

That's quite the list. But it's really interesting to see just how many players have done it more than once. 

Antonio netted four on Saturday

Cole, Fowler, Owen, Solskjaer, Yakubu, Berbatov, Lampard and Aguero all scored four goals in the same game on more than one occasion... madness. 

Fairplay to Lampard especially, considering he was a midfielder! 

Then, there are a few players who have scored FIVE goals in one game. 

Cole, Shearer, Berbatov, Defoe and Aguero all boast that achievement, which is quite ridiculous. 

Aguero has scored FIVE in one game

With his quadruple against Norwich, West Ham's Antonio really does put his name next to so many Premier League legends. 

It really is a massive shame there were no fans in the stadium to witness a little bit of history because scoring four in 90 minutes really is a rarity!
