Jadon Sancho Is The Fifth Player To Notch 15+ Goals And 15+ Assists In A Season

Jadon Sancho Is The Fifth Player To Notch 15+ Goals And 15+ Assists In A Season

Jadon Sancho has become only the fifth player to score 15+ goals and register 15+ assists in a single season.

After spending the first few games on the bench after the Bundesliga action returned behind closed doors, Sancho marked his first start since lockdown with a stunning 35-minute hat-trick in the 6-1 thrashing of Paderborn on Sunday.

He also laid on an assist in the game to take his tally to 17 goals and 17 assists in the German top flight this term.

Following on from his scintillating performance, Sancho has become the first Englishman to score at least 15 and assist at least 15 in a leading European league.

He's the fifth player in total to achieve such a feat, joining Lionel Messi, Eden Hazard, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez in the special club.

Jadon Sancho With A Scorching Display In Borussia Dortmund Friendly

Messi, whose attacking numbers are utterly breathtaking, has done so on four separate occasions: 2010/11, 2011/12, 2014/15 and 2015/16 - while Hazard has completed it with superb individual campaigns at Lille and Chelsea respectively.

Ronaldo's glittering stint at Real Madrid was goal-heavy but he also contributed in other ways - particularly in 2014/15 when he registered 16 assists to go with the 48 goals he bagged in La Liga.

And finally Suarez is on the exclusive list following his excellent 2015/16 performances. Not only did he top the scoring charts with 40 goals for Barcelona, the Uruguayan also set up teammates on 16 occasions as the Blaugrana narrowly pipped Real Madrid to the La Liga title.

Despite bagging his first career hat-trick, Sancho's three-goal haul is not deemed to be a 'proper hat-trick' because teammates Achraf Hakimi and Marcel Schmelzer both scored between the 20-year-old's second and third goal.
