Sadio Mane is the fastest player in history to score a hat-trick in Premier League

Since the English top flight Championship was renamed Premier League in 1992, the football player with the fastest hat-trick in Premier League is Sadio Mane.

The Senegal international scored three times in Southampton's 6-1 demolition of Aston Villa on 16 May 2005 at the St Mary's Stadium.

The 29-year-old three goals came in 2 minutes and 56 seconds after going up in 16 minutes.

The Senegalese first goal of the game came on 13 minutes when he slotted home from a Given's initial save. He stuck his second goal into an empty net on 14 minutes after a blunder from the opponent defender and created a history with a fine strike from inside the box to seal his hat-trick on 16 minutes.

This record breaks Robbie Fowler's 21-year record of four minutes and 33 seconds for Liverpool in 1994.

Two goals from Long and a goal from Pelle completed the 6-1 hammering of Aston Villa.
