Meet The African Player Who Scored 3 Goals In Less Than 3 Minutes In An EPL Match

The record for the fastest hat-trick in the English Premier League is held by Sadio Mane who scored three goals in two minutes and 56 seconds against Aston Villa in 2015. The winger scored quickfire goals in the 13th, 14th and 15th minutes for the Saints.

Mane broke Robbie Fowler’s two-decade long record for the fastest hat-trick in the English Premier League by an astounding 97 seconds.

A hat-trick in soccer is when one player scores three goals in a single soccer game. These three goals don’t have to be scored consecutively or in the same style. Any player can score a hat-trick at any point during a game.

He signed for fellow Premier League side Liverpool in 2016, for a reported fee of £34 million. With Liverpool, Mane helped them reach back-to-back UEFA Champions League Finals in 2018 and 2019, winning the latter. In October 2021 he scored his 100th Premier League goal, becoming the third African to reach the landmark.
