Sergio Aguero scored his tenth Premier League hat-trick on Sunday, as Manchester City beat Arsenal 3-1.

No surprise though that it is Alan Shearer who has still scored more Premier League hat-tricks than any other player.

The best striker by far of the PL era, scoring 11 in total, including two when playing for Newcastle United (Full list of NUFC Premier League hat-trick scorers below).

The roll call of honour when it comes to scoring Premier League hat-tricks is:

11 Alan Shearer

10 Sergio Aguero

9 Robbie Fowler

8 Thierry Henry

8 Harry Kane

8 Michael Owen

Newcastle have had 10 different players who have scored Premier League hat-tricks and they are listed below…

In total, 13 NUFC Premier League hat-tricks have been scored, with seven players scoring one each, three scoring two whilst on Newcastle’s books:

18 Oct 2015 Gini Wijnaldum – Newcastle 6 Norwich 2

31 Oct 2011 Demba Ba – Stoke 1 Newcastle 3

23 Sept 2011 Demba Ba – Newcastle 3 Blackburn 1

5 Jan 2011 Leon Best – Newcastle 5 West Ham 0

31 Oct 2010 Kevin Nolan – Newcastle 5 Sunderland 1

22 Aug 2010 Andy Carroll – Newcastle 6 Aston Villa 0

17 Dec 2005 Michael Owen – West Ham 2 Newcastle 4

19 Sept 1999 Alan Shearer – Newcastle 8 Sheff Wed 0

2 Feb 1997 Alan Shearer – Newcastle 4 Leicester 3

21 Oct 1995 Les Ferdinand – Newcastel 6 Wimbledon 1

23 Feb 1994 Andy Cole – Newcastle 4 Coventry 0

21 Nov 1993 Andy Cole – Newcastle 3 Liverpool 0

30 Oct 1993 Peter Beardsley – Newcastle 4 Wimbledon 0

You can’t help be surprised that in the last eight years, only one Newcastle player has scored a hat-trick, and that was a midfielder.

Maybe Miguel Almiron can change that…?
