Southampton midfielder Sadio Mané scored the fastest-ever Premier League hat-trick against Aston Villa.
Mané completed his hat-trick in two minutes and 56 seconds as the Saints made a sensational start against Tim Sherwood's side at St Mary's Stadium.
The Senegal international's quickfire three-goal haul bettered the league's previous best of four minutes and 33 seconds set by Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler against Arsenal in 1994.
Mane was surprised to hear of his achievement after the match but insisted the result meant more after a run of four league matches without a win.
He told BT Sport: "It's great. But I think more important for me was the victory and we got that, so I'm happy for the team and the fans.
"We have a chance (to reach Europe) and we'll try to win the next game. It won't be easy but we'll keep going and try to win that next game.
"We have a great team.The last few weeks were not easy but we had to work every day and finally we got the victory."
2m56s - Sadio Mane's hat-trick took just two minutes and 56 seconds, the fastest ever seen in the @premierleague. Sensation.
Sadio Mane is only the third Southampton player to score a PL hat-trick after James Beattie & Matthew Le Tissier.
