“He’s good but does he score enough goals?”
That’s what critics of Paulo Dybala often say as they brew in their own salty juices.
Well, no such questions could be asked of the 23-year-old Argentine this season.
Juventus’ new No10 scored a hat-trick against Sassulo to take his league tally to eight goals after just four games.
In fact, if you add in his brace in the Super Cup then he’s already on double figures for the season.
Check out his stylish triple in all its glory…
Not a bad afternoon’s work.
Dybala’s first strike brought up his 50th goal for Juve in his 100th game.
The two subsequent goals means he averages just over a goal every other game which is a superb record for a young talent who often plays slightly behind Gonzalo Higuain.
Luca Toni was the last man to score in each of the first four Serie A matchdays back in 2005.
While only Wayne Rooney (2011/12) has also scored eight goals from the first four league games in Europe’s top five leagues in recent memory.
Dybala’s efforts have led Italy’s reigning champions to four wins from as many games at the start of this campaign.
Believe the hype.
