Top 5 players who scored the most Premier League hat-tricks in one season
What makes the Premier League a glorious spectacle to watch is goals, goals and more goals. In a league where Goal Difference makes a huge difference compared to other top European leagues, there is no mercy when teams have a field day against opponents.
In such games, we see the strikers make merry as tactics are thrown out the window when opponents pour forward in search of an equaliser or at least a consolation goal. It is no wonder then we see such lopsided scorelines and players grabbing memorable hat-tricks by the time the final whistle blows.
We look at the elite few in England’s top tier have scored a hat-trick at least three times in a single season.
5) Harry Kane – Tottenham Hotspur
When Harry Kane burst onto the scene in the 2014/15 season, Mauricio Pochettino had seen enough to bench the likes of Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor. Here was a striker who was barely in his 20s and he was working hard on the pitch to get into goalscoring positions and finding the back of the net with increasing regularity.
Soldado and Adebayor have since disappeared into footballing ignominy while Kane is setting new records every season. For the third consecutive season, he has scored at least 20 goals in the league that put him among elite company with the likes of Alan Shearer, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Thierry Henry!
With four goals against Leicester City in the penultimate game of the season, Kane put his name into the hat for the Golden Boot heading into the final day. He had previously scored hat-tricks against West Bromwich Albion and Stoke City in 4-0 wins at White Hart Lane.
