Every single player to score 4+ goals in a Premier League game

Every single player to score 4+ goals in a Premier League game -Premier League News

Kevin de Bruyne’s stunning four-goal performance against Wolverhampton Wanderers a few weeks ago got us thinking. Who else is part of the exclusive club in which the Belgian has just cemented himself into? Can the club even be classed as exclusive? We wanted to find out.

In total, 27 players have done it in a Premier League game, with seven of those names even doing it twice and some even scoring more than four. The first time can be classed as a good day at the office. The second, however, should leave people in awe of what is a never-ending goal scoring machine.

Some names may surprise a few, whilst others should ignite memories of the past. I mean, who could forget Andrey Arshavin’s famous four at Anfield in a stunning 4-4 draw against Liverpool in April of 2009?

So, here’s the full list of all the players to have scored four or more goals in a Premier League game….

Interestingly enough, there has only been six seasons, in which a player hasn’t managed to score four or more goals at least once in a Premier League game, with this achievement ticked off the top flight bingo list in eight of the last nine seasons.

Who do you think will be next to join the plus four-goal club in the Premier League? Our money is on Erling Haaland…
