Jadon Sancho becomes only the fifth player - after Lionel Messi, Eden Hazard, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez - to register 15 goals and 15 assists in a single season.
Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho has become just the fifth player since 2006-07 to register both 15 goals and 15 assists in a single season in one of Europe's top five leagues.
The 20-year-old registered his first senior hat-trick during Dortmund's 6-1 thumping of SC Paderborn last weekend, taking his tallies up to 17 goals and 16 assists in just 27 Bundesliga outings this term.
In doing so, Sancho has joined an elite group of players to have passed the 15 mark for both goals and assists in a single season since 2006-07.
Barcelona's Lionel Messi has achieved the feat on four separate occasions - in 2010-11, 2011-12, 2014-15 and 2015-16.
Eden Hazard is the only other player to have managed it more than once, reaching the milestones for Lille in 2011-12 and then again for Chelsea in 2018-19.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez are the other two names to have done so, in 2014-15 and 2015-16 respectively.
Sancho has become the youngest player of that group to reach the 15-15 landmark, and could still add to those tallies with five games remaining for Dortmund this season.
