The 31 Players Who Have Scored A 'Perfect' Hat-Trick In Premier League History
A list of 'perfect' hat-tricks scored in the Premier League era has been compiled following Christian Pulisic's strikes against Burnley on Saturday evening.
The American forward repaid the faith shown in him by boss Frank Lampard by netting three at Turf Moor in a 4-2 victory.
The former Borussia Dortmund man scored with his left foot, right foot and a glancing header.
He also became the second American to net three in the Premier League after Clint Dempsey for Fulham in 2012.
He is the first Chelsea player to score a perfect hat-trick since club legend Didier Drogba against Wigan Athletic in 2010.
In the history of the Premier League, the feat has only been achieved by 31 men.
Only Robbie Fowler, Yakubu and Sergio Aguero have done it more than once.
Despite the wealth of talent that has featured in the English top flight over the years, some of the top Premier League strikers miss out.
