This season, Premier League fans have seen many remarkable performances from attacking players.
Strikers like Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy, Sergio Aguero, Romelu Lukaku and Jermaine Defore have scored some valuable goals for their respective teams, while midfielders like Riyad Mahrez and Sadio Mane have also shared goalscoring burdens for their teams.
Here we take a look at the top five hat-tricks from this season.
5) Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal) vs. Leicester City [5-2, King Power Stadium]
The Chilean star scored an impressive hat-trick to lead his team to a convincing 5-2 win over the eventual league winners at King Power Stadium back in September.
This game remains the Foxes’ only league defeat in front of the home crowd this season.
4) Sadio Mane (Southampton) vs. Manchester City [4-2, St. Mary’s Stadium]
Earlier this month, Mane helped his team inflict a damaging 4-2 defeat to Manchester City. The result helped Arsenal move ahead of City into the third spot and left Manuel Pellegrini’s side struggling for fourth.
3) Sergio Aguero (Manchester City) vs. Chelsea [3-0, Stamford Bridge]
Aguero helped his team inflict an embarrassing 3-0 defeat on Guus Hiddink’s men last month. This was the Argentine’s second hat-trick of the season.
Chelsea have had a disappointing season by their standards, but it’s never an easy task for an away player to score a hat-trick at Stamford Bridge.
2) Riyad Mahrez (Leicester City) vs. Swansea [3-0, Liberty Stadium]
The Premier League Player of the Year scored his first ever hat-trick to help the Foxes defeat the Swans at Liberty Stadium back in December. The win helped Leicester move ahead of Arsenal at the top of the league table.
1) Andy Carroll (West Ham United) vs. Arsenal [3-3, Upton Park]
The recent hat-trick from the lanky striker delivered a final blow to Arsenal’s hopes of winning the Premier League.
The Gunners were comfortably leading the game 2-0 before Carroll scored a ten-minute hat-trick to give the lead to the Hammers. Arsenal were able to level the score late in the second-half, but the result left many fans enraged with the performance of the team.
