Robert Lewandowski came on as a half-time on Tuesday night, and by the 60th minute was celebrating his fifth goal of the game. Yes you did read that right.

The Bayern Munich striker’s exploits not only helped his side come back from a goal down against the previously unbeaten Wolfsburg, but also handed the record for the quickest Bundesliga hat-trick, fastest four goal haul and speediest quintet of strikes.

And whenever a world class striker shows moments of brilliance, you can always rely on the Arsenal fans to come out in force lambasting their club’s failure to land him or any other suitable forward for that matter…

In more than doubling his season haul from four goals to nine in such a short period of time there is no doubting Lewandowski’s brilliance. It hasn’t just been just Tuesday night that he has been delivering in Germany, with 99 goals in 169 Bundesliga appearances. So then, we leave you with one notion, spare a thought for Blackburn fans who have been left wandering what could have been…
