Only club legend Ian Wright and former winger Jermaine Pennant have netted quicker trebles for the Gunners in an English top-flight fixture

Alexis Sanchez stole the show for Arsenal in their 5-1 mauling of West Ham on Saturday.

The Chilean netted a hat-trick at London Stadium to take the game away from the struggling hosts.

Alexis proves he's worth the money

He did so in double-quick time as well, with the target found three times in the space of just 14 second-half minutes.

That impressive scoring feat has moved him into third place on a notable roll of honour.

Arsenal’s glittering Premier League history has now included 38 hat-tricks, but only two of those were plundered quicker than Sanchez’s treble.

Sanchez has now claimed two Premier League match-balls during his Arsenal career, with a first hat-trick netted against Leicester back in September 2015.

He is also just the second player to bag a treble in the English top-flight this season, following Romelu Lukaku’s stellar showing against Sunderland in September.

The 27-year-old now has 13 goals for the campaign, with that return generated in just 19 appearances in all competitions.
