It has been 23 years since a summer signing announced themselves with a debut hat-trick on the Premier League's opening weekend.
But new players to the Premier League, such as Christian Pulisic, of Chelsea, or Jota, of Aston Villa, will aim to emulate Ravanelli's unique accomplishment when they kick off their campaigns in just under two months' time.
They now know who they will be facing in Matchweek 1 after the release of the 2019/20 fixtures.
Bought from Juventus as Boro's then-record signing, Ravanelli made an immediate impact with three goals in an opening-day 3-3 draw with Liverpool in 1996/97.
And each of those four players also recorded an assist in their first PL match.
Aguero's early impression was particularly impressive as his two goals and assist for Manchester City against Swansea City in 2011 came in only 30 minutes after he had been introduced as a substitute.
