    Bit of clue here folks…

    For Question 4, I am looking for the player that scored the quickest hat-trick FROM KICK OFF in The Premier League, i.e, the player who took the shortest amount of time from the start of the game to get three goals.

    Robbie Fowler did indeed net the ‘fastest’ hat-trick in Premier League history (4 mins 32 secs – Liverpool v Arsenal 1994) but his first goal wasn’t scored until the 36th minute of the match, and the player I’m looking for managed to get all three goals before Fowler had even got his first.
