How Leandro Trossard becomes third player to score PL hat-trick vs Liverpool at Anfield

Roberto De Zerbi got his Brighton tenure off to a positive start as they claimed a dramatic point at Liverpool with Leandro Trossard scoring a fine hat-trick.


Leandro Trossard produced one of the finest performances of his career as he scored a hat-trick in Brighton’s thrilling 3-3 draw against Liverpool at Anfield.


The Seagulls stormed into a two-goal lead in Roberto De Zerbi’s first game in charge, before Jurgen Klopp’s men mounted a comeback. Roberto Firmino scored a brace to put Liverpool back on level terms, before an Adam Webster own-goal completed the turnaround.


However, the drama didn’t end there as Trossard scored his first-ever Premier League hat-trick, all with his weaker left foot, to earn a share of the spoils in the North West. It was a result that kept Brighton in the top four, while Liverpool remained in 10th with just 10 points from their opening seven league games.


Trossard also became only the third player to score a Premier League hat-trick at Anfield after Peter Ndlovu and Andriy Arshavin, and the 11th to net a treble against the Reds since the division’s introduction in 1992.


Ndlovu, who was the first African to grace the Premier League, stole the show as Coventry beat Liverpool 3-2. He wasn’t a regular scorer but often turned up in the big games, like that one in March 1995 when the Zimbabwean became the first away player to score a treble at Anfield in 30 years.


Meanwhile, Arshavin didn’t really impress during his time with Arsenal, but he certainly did on that epic night at Anfield, when the Russian was in an inspired form and struck all four of his side’s goals. He’s still the only player to have scored a ‘super hat-trick’ on Liverpool’s ground, which is when a player scores four times.

But Trossard will remember the day he scored a treble at Anfield for the rest of his life, and what a hat-trick it was. His first was an excellent finish, as the Belgian spun past Trent Alexander-Arnold before lashing the ball into the bottom corner on three minutes
