LUFC Two Leeds hat-tricks in Sky top ten

LUFC Two Leeds hat-tricks in Sky top ten

Leeds United have two players in the top ten Premier League hat-tricks named by Sky Sports.

Tony Yeboah was named number seven on the list for his hat-trick at Wimbledon in 1995. His first goal was a simple tap in at the far post. His second goal rivalled his goal against Liverpool just a month earlier, when his right foot straight almost broke the crossbar as it bounced down behind the line. Sky commentator Martin Tyler described the goal as 'breathtakingly brilliant.`

His third goal was a snap shot with his left foot from the edge of the area, finishing off the move he started on the halfway line.

Second Goal:



Mark Viduka came in at three for his hat-trick against Liverpool at Elland Road in November 2000. The Australian netted all four goals in one of the best games in Premier League history as Leeds came from two down to win 4-3.

His first was a clever dink over Liverpool goalkeeper Sander Westerveld before he netted his second with a firm header. He completed his hat-trick as he twisted and turned the Liverpool defence before firing past Westerveld. Just to rub salt in the wounds of Liverpool, he scored a fourth with a goal that was reminiscent of his first.

Four goal Mark Viduka:




There was also two former Leeds strikers in the top ten list with Robbie Fowler at nine for the quickest hat-trick in Premier League history against Arsenal and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink came in at six for the hat-trick he scored against Tottenham Hotspur during his days with Chelsea.

Where would you rank these in your best ever Leeds hat-tricks during the Premier League era?

Personally, I would have Michael Bridges hat-trick against Southampton at the Dell high on my list.
