"Brighton scored three own goals against Liverpool at the weekend," writes Ed Peeters. "Is that a record?"

A fine effort though it was from Gus Poyet's players, they fail to find a place in football's history books. Indeed their team tally has been equalled by a single player, the hapless Germinal Ekeren defender Stan van den Buijs, who scored all three of Anderlecht's goals in their 3-2 win in January 1995. It hasn't done him too much harm though – he's now chief scout at the club.

Catania went one better than Brighton back in 1960-61. The Sicilian club were hammered 5-0 by Helenio Herrera's Internazionale at San Siro in January, with no fewer than four goals being scored by Catania players – Inter's Egidio Morbello opened the scoring, but Catania's Franco Giavara scored two, Elio Grani added another and Mario Corti completed the rout.

Catania, though, still fall 145 goals short of the record. Here's Scott Murray with the tale:

In scoring five times against Wigan, the Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe tied a Premier League record held by Alan Shearer and Andrew Cole. Shearer put five past Sheffield Wednesday playing for Newcastle in September 1999 and Cole did the same for Manchester United against Ipswich in 1995.

In March of that year Cole was the most destructive member of a United side which set another record when they beat Ipswich 9-0 at Old Trafford. It remains the biggest margin of victory in any Premier League match since its inception in 1992-93.

United also hold the record for the Premier League's biggest away victory, in February 1999 when they beat Nottingham Forest 8-1 at the City Ground, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer finding the net four times in 12 minutes after coming on as a substitute (a player has scored four goals on 18 occasions in the Premier League, but Defoe becomes just the third player to score five).

In conceding nine goals, Wigan have tied the record for most...
