Jadon Sancho marked his first Bundesliga start since lockdown ended with a superb hat-trick in the easy 6-1 over Paderborn on Saturday.

The winger converted Julian Brandt's cutback to score his first and reveal a t-shirt message supporting George Floyd, whose death has sparked nationwide protests in the USA.

Why Jadon Sancho is a future Ballon d'Or winner

Sancho scored his second by shifting the ball onto his left foot and drilling home past the outstretched glove of the goalkeeper.

And in injury-time he completed his first senior treble, running clear of the Paderborn back line to retain his composure and slot past the keeper.

Sancho has been outperforming xG all season and this was no exception, racking up three goals on a total of just 1.2 xG for the match. Three shots, three on target, three goals.

Sancho also completed three dribbles, the most on the pitch, as well as creating two big chances for team-mates which weren't created, giving him an xA total of 1.2. His eight touches in the opposition box were also more than any other player.
