Well I was close yesterday when I said I thought Gabby’s hattrick had to be one of the fastest, if not the fastest in the Premiership. I was only slightly out.

The following figures are shamelessly stolen from the official site, but I don’t think they’ll mind.

Gabby’s perfect hattrick in the match against Man City came in exactly 7.37 minutes and puts him in second place in the table for quickest hattricks in the Premiership.

What’s more remarkable is his effort is only bettered by Robbie Fowler.

Robbie Fowler – 4.33 mins on Aug 28th 1994 for Liverpool v Arsenal.

Gabby Aggy – 7.37 mins on 17 Aug 2008 for Villa v Man City

Ian Wright – 9 mins on 15 apr 1995 for Arsenal v Ipswich

Ole Gunnar Sunshine – 10 mins on 6 Feb 1999 for Man U v Notts Forest

Teddy Sheringham – 10 mins on 28 Oct 2000 for Man U v Southampton

Jermaine Pennant – 10 mins on 7 May 2003 for Arsenal v Southampton

So there you go stat freaks, enjoy!
