This has only happened three times in the English top flight

Premier League is not only the richest and most popular football league in the world, but it is also one of the toughest leagues in the world. The completion at the top of the league, the midtable teams and even the relegation battle is growing ever tougher each season. The result are never guaranteed in the English top flight.

Players have found it difficult to adapt to the high intensity and level of the English game. While some have found the high media coverage and media plaudits difficult to overcome. While some players like Erling Haaland, have adapted to the league and have made it look like a walk in the park.

Scoring a hat-trick is always special on any day. While some sides have managed to get two players with 3 goals in a single Premier League match. Here are all the instances of the same:

Jermaine Pennant, Robert Pires (Arsenal vs Southampton, May 2003)

Arsenal win 6-1 against Southampton in the Premier League on May 7 2003. Robert Pires opened the scoring in the 9th minute. Pennant scored two goals in the 16th and 19th minute to hand the home side a comfortable 3-0 lead within 20 minutes. Pires scored again in the 23rd minute, while Pennant completed his hat-trick in the 26th minute. Pires completed his hat trick in the second half. This was the first time two players from the same team had scored a hat trick in a Premier League game. The final score was 6-1 in favour of Arsenal.

Ben Chilwell opened the scoring in the 10th minute. Ryan Bertrand was sent off in the 12th minute and Leicester City took full advantage of the one-man advantage and scored 9 goals past Southampton, recording one of the biggest victories in the Premier League. Ayoze Perez scored two goals in the first half and completed his hat-trick in the second half. Vardy joined the party late and completed his hat-trick in the second half alone.

Erling Haaland, Phil Foden (Manchester City vs Manchester United, October 2022)

Haaland has been on top form since joining the Premier League and has broken a lot of records. The Norwegian striker made his mark in his first ever Manchester derby, scoring a hattrick and registering two assists. This was also his third consecutive hattrick at home. While Manchester City, born and bread star Phil Foden also scored a hat-trick against the red side of Manchester. Although Manchester United did pull a few goals back at the end, but it was still a very humbling and humiliating defeat nonetheless.
