Date published: Wednesday 6th November 2019 8:43

– Manchester United have not scored a Premier League hat-trick since Sir Alex Ferguson’s penultimate home game in charge. Robin van Persie’s brilliant treble against Aston Villa that secured their last title was six-and-a-half years ago.

– In the final six-and-a-half years of Ferguson’s reign, since 2007, the Red Devils netted 13 hat-tricks.

– Of all the current Premier League clubs, only Brighton and Sheffield United have not boasted a Premier League hat-trick scorer since United’s last; the Blades have spent all but 11 games in the Championship.

– Since United’s last hat-trick, Manchester City have scored 13, with Sergio Aguero netting ten of them.

– Harry Kane has helped himself to eight trebles for Spurs, while Liverpool have scored seven.

– Other players to score multiple hat-tricks since United’s last: Raheem Sterling, Luis Suarez, Romelu Lukaku (all three), Alexis Sanchez, Christian Benteke, Ayoze Perez, Jamie Vardy, Eden Hazard, Mo Salah, Callum Wilson (all two).

– Former United forwards Lukaku, Sanchez and Wayne Rooney have all scored three times in one game for other teams at least once since a United player last took home a match ball.

– One of Lukaku’s hat-tricks came against United in Ferguson’s final ever match in charge.

– Adam Johnson scored a hat-trick more recently than United and he served three years in prison from 2016.

– Six players have scored perfect hat-tricks since United’s last of any sort.

– Since United’s last hat-trick, they have spent £840million on new players. Almost £290m of that was spent on attackers, including Angel Di Maria, Radamel Falcao, Memphis Depay, Anthony Martial, Sanchez and Lukaku.

– Van Persie, Rooney and Zlatan Ibrahimovic have at least netted hat-tricks in Europe since United’s last in the Premier League.
