Hey, kid – wanna watch some Robin van Persie hat-tricks? Sure you do.

You may have noticed the Manchester United striker ‘bagging’ a treble in last night’s 3-0 Champions League win over Olympiacos – well, that got us wondering how many times he’s done it before in competitive matches.


The answer is 6 – yes, six Robin van Persie hat-tricks prior to last night’s – and here they are, for your delectation…

v Hungary, October 2013

Van Persie became Holland’s all-time leading goal-scorer – ahead of Patrick Kluivert, in case you were wondering – with a hat-trick in an 8-1 win.

v Aston Villa, April 2013

It was Manchester United’s third-to-last Old Trafford match of the Sir Alex Ferguson era when RVP hit three first-half strikes in a 3-0 win, sealing the Premier League title in the process.

His second, taken on the volley over his shoulder from a long Wayne Rooney pass, is one of the most beautiful strikes of a ball you’ll ever see.

v Southampton, September 2012

In his second league game for the Red Devils, RVP scored all three in a 3-2 win at St Mary’s, popping up in the 87th and 92nd minutes to overturn a 2-1 deficit in dramatic fashion.

v Blackburn Rovers, February 2012

His last hat-trick for Arsenal came in this 7-1 home league victory…

v Chelsea, October 2011

Van Persie’s second and third goals arrived in the 85th and 92nd minutes, securing an unforgettable 5-3 win at Stamford Bridge.

v Wigan Athletic, January 2011

His first competitive career hat-trick came when he netted all three in a 3-0 home league win over Wigan in which he also missed a penalty!

We hope you enjoyed your Robin van Persie hat-tricks. Perhaps there are more to come…
