After Aaron Ramsey’s treble at the weekend more Arsenal players have scored a Premier League hat-trick than any other club in the competition’s history.

According to BarriesView.com, Ramsey is the 20th Arsenal player to score a hat-trick for the Gunners.

The full list of players, along with the opposition and date of their first hat-trick, is as follows:

1. Kevin Campbell

– Ipswich Town, 11 September 1993.

2. Ian Wright

– Ipswich Town, 05 March 1994.

3. Dennis Bergkamp

– Leicester City, 27 August 1997.

4. Nicolas Anelka

– Leicester City, 20 February 1999.

5. Kanu

– Chelsea, 23 October 1999.

6. Marc Overmars

– Middlesbrough, 21 November 1999.

7. Ray Parlour

– Newcastle United, 10 December 2000.

8. Thierry Henry

– Leicester City, 26 December 2000.

9. Sylvain Wiltord

– West Ham United, 03 March 2001.

10. Jermaine Pennant

11. Robert Pires

19. Olivier Giroud

– Aston Villa, 15 May 2016.

20. Aaron Ramsey

– Everton, 03 February 2018.

Interestingly, there are quite a large number of players who scored their first hat-trick against Leicester City.

Dennis Bergkamp, Nicolas Anelka, Thierry Henry and Alexis Sanchez all achieved the same feat.

The largest gap between new hat-trickers was almost five years, between 2003 and 2008.

As well as having the largest number of hat-trick scorers, Arsenal players have also scored the most hat-tricks.

The Gunners are top with 39 in the Premier League. Liverpool are their closest competitors with 36.

Ramsey was also the sixth Welsh player to score a Premier League hat-trick, and the first for Arsenal.

Hopefully the likes of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can add their names to the Gunners’ hat-trick list before long.
