Luka Jovic: Match Performance
The Serbian International, on loan from Portuguese side Benfica made a statement with a mesmerizing individual display on just his third top-flight start of the season.
The story started when he made the scores 2-0 with an accrobatic volley in the 26th minute, before adding another just before the break.
Ten minutes into the second half, he completed his hat-trick. He added a quick-fire double before making way to a standing ovation.
Jovic follows the footsteps of Robert Lewandowski, who was the last player to hit 5 in one match in the Bundesliga (2015, Bayern vs Wolfsburg).
