Quiz! Can you name the last 50 players to score a Premier League hat-trick?
Yesterday we quizzed you on the Premier League’s most recent penalty savers, so it’s time to shift our attention to the top of the pitch. Particularly because a certain Manchester City attacker has nabbed a Premier League hat-trick in just the second round of games this season.
That was this free-scoring Citizen’s ninth Premier League hat-trick, drawing him level with Robbie Fowler on the post-1992 top-flight list. Only Alan Shearer (on 11) stands ahead of both players.
Yet neither the striker Liverpool supporters call 'God', nor the man Newcastle fans still refer to as 'Alan Shearer' are on this quiz. That’s because we’re testing you on the 50 most recent players to score a Premier League hat-trick and these two legends have been pushed out by modern goal-snafflers.
Each player’s latest Prem hat-trick is below, alongside their national team as a bonus clue. Let us know how you get on @FourFourTwo – we’ll retweet the best scores, if you don’t give answers away – and please challenge a trio of your friends too.
