That’s right! Former Arsenal forward Ted Drake scored seven goals in one game against Aston Villa in December 1935.
The Gunners’ classic number 9 scored 124 times in 167 appearances for Arsenal in a career spanning over 11 years but he was unable to return to action properly after the Second World War due to a spinal injury he suffered during a game versus Reading.
The legendary forward also featured for Southampton in the early 30s, scoring 47 goals in 71 appearances.
