A breakdown of Premier League hat-tricks by season

There is a stark difference between the number of hat-tricks scored in Premier League seasons since its inception in 1992/93. As shown below, both 1993/94 and 2011/12 saw the most, with 19 hat-tricks scored in each campaign. The 2011/12 total is particularly notable given that it was played with the now standard 20 teams, as opposed to the 22 teams that competed in 1993/94.

The 2006/07 campaign saw the fewest hat-tricks, with the just three scored over the course of that season.
