Southampton forward Sadio Mané scores hat-trick in less than three minutes, breaks Premier League record

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."

Southampton boss laughs off Pochettino comments

Ronald Koeman has given a lighthearted response to former Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino's claims that the Dutchman inherited a winning team.

The former Barcelona defender took over from the Argentine in the summer, but was forced into overhauling the squad, as many of their star players were sold off.

Despite the turnover in players, Koeman has taken the south coast side into the top four of the Premier League.

"First of all, it was on Spanish radio so I don't know exactly what was said and if the comments were really like that," said the Dutchman.

"He is free to give his opinions, I'm happy in Southampton and thank you Mauricio; I have an easy job!

"That is the reason that I came to Southampton, to have a little holiday with everything organised, a good team and good players. I'm joking! I have no comments."
