If a player scores a couple of goals, that’s a pretty good offensive day. If a player scores multiple goals, that’s a spectacular day. Four or more in a game? Amazing.
Only 30 four-goal games have taken place in the English Premier League since it was established in 1992. This season has seen two such games: Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero scored five goals against Newcastle United last October and Georginio Wijnaldum scored four games for Newcastle United against Norwich City.
