This mid-week saw a full slate of Premier League fixtures which were chock full of goals, drama and excitement. Scoring was at a premium in fact, and the ten games delivered a total of 34 goals which were shared fairly evenly around teams in all areas of the league.

The most prolific individual scorer was Sunderland striker Jermain Defoe who rolled back the years to record a hat trick against Swansea City – his fourth in the Premier League! That astonishing achievement of four hat tricks however, does not get Defoe into our list of the top 11 hat trick getters since the Premier League’s inception in 1992/93, who all netted at least five.
