Premier League

The last 10 players to score a hattrick for Chelsea in English Premier League

Mason Mount became the first Chelsea player since 2019 to score a hattrick in the Premier League as the blues defeated Norwich City 7-0 on Saturday.

Here is a countdown of the last 10 players to score a hattrick for Chelsea in the EPL.

10. Fernando Torres (Chelsea 6-1 QPR, April 2012)

It took a while before Chelsea's then record signing, Fernando Torres scored his first goal for the club. It took him well over a year to score his first and only PL hattrick for the blues in a 6-1 win over QPR, towards the tail end of the 2011/2012 season.

9. Samuel Eto'o (Chelsea 3-1 Manchester United, January 2014)

Samuel Eto'o spent only one season at Chelsea when he was well over 30 years of age but being a chronic goalscorer, he ensured he scored a hattrick for the club in PL before he left. The best thing about it is that it came against bitter rivals Manchester United.

8. Eden Hazard (Chelsea 3-0 Newcastle, February 2014)

The following month after Eto'o's hattrick, Eden Hazard scored his first PL hattrick in Chelsea's 3-0 win over Newcastle. Two of the Belgian's goals were assisted by the Cameroonian legend.

7. André Schürrle (Fulham 1-3 Chelsea, March 2014)

Chelsea left it late during the 2013/2014 season but when the hattricks came in the second half of the season, it went on for three consecutive months. André Schürrle's hattrick against Fulham ensured that the third consecutive hattrick in the EPL during that period came from a Chelsea player. Coincidentally, just like Eto'o did after scoring the first hattrick, Eden Hazard supplied two of Andre Schürrle's goal after scoring a hattrick the previous month.

6. Diego Costa (Chelsea 4-2 Swansea, September 2014)

The year 2014 was a year of hattricks for Chelsea in the EPL as Diego Costa was the fourth and final Chelsea player that year to grab a hattrick in competition. His hattrick was against Swansea at the beginning of Chelsea's title-winning 2014/2015 season. This time around, it was Cesc Fàbregas, not Schürrle that assisted two of the goals.

5. Álvaro Morata (Stoke 0-4 Chelsea, September 2017)

Álvaro Morata's blistering start to his Chelsea career made the fans, for a moment, think that he was the one to put an end to the club's striker issues after Didier Drogba's departure. He scored a memorable hattrick in Chelsea's 4-0 thrashing of Stoke before things went south for him. César Azpilicueta supplied two of the assists for him in that game.

4. Eden Hazard (Chelsea 4-0 Cardiff, September 2018)

Eden Hazard scored his second Premier League hattrick at the beginning of his last season at Chelsea. Again, the tradition of having a player assist two goals for the hattrick continued as Olivier Giroud was the one to supply the assists this time.

3. Tammy Abraham (Wolves 2-5 Chelsea, September 2019)

Tammy Abraham became the first Englishman since Frank Lampard to score a hattrick for Chelsea in the EPL. Incidentally, his hattrick was the first under Frank Lampard at the beginning of his tenure as Chelsea's manager. The funny thing is that he also scored an own goal in the game.

2. Christian Pulisic (Burnley 2-4 Chelsea, October 2019)

Christian Pulisic became the second Chelsea player to score a hattrick in the Premier League during the 2019/2020 season. A young lad named Mason Mount provided the assist for the goal that completed the hattrick.

1. Mason Mount (Chelsea 7-0 Norwich, October 2021)

Two years after providing that assist, Mason Mount wrote his name in the history books by becoming the latest Chelsea player to score a hattrick in the EPL. He will be hoping to emulate his idol, Frank Lampard in the area of goalscoring.
