Chelsea vs Everton: Premier League matchup ends in a draw

Chelsea dominates Everton with Cole Palmer's perfect hat trick in a 6-0 victory. Palmer shines with seven home-game scoring streak.

Chelsea put on a spectacular performance against Everton, with Cole Palmer stealing the show with an impressive first-half hat trick and adding a fourth goal in the second half. Palmer's goals came in quick succession, showcasing his skills with his left foot, head, and right foot in the 13th, 19th, and 29th minutes. This remarkable feat made him the first Chelsea player to score in seven consecutive home games.

In an interview with Sky Sports, Palmer expressed his excitement about his performance, stating, "It all happens so fast. We started well and I scored another hat trick -- buzzing. First one was my favorite, my right foot was a bit of a swinger." The Manchester City reject displayed his talent with a superb strike from outside the box, a close-range header, and a stunning lob from 35 yards out after a mistake from Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

Nicolas Jackson also got on the scoresheet with a goal just before halftime, and Palmer completed his hat trick with a penalty in the 64th minute. Substitute Alfie Gilchrist added a sixth goal in injury time, sealing a dominant victory for Chelsea.

Palmer's goals took his season tally to 20 in the league, putting him level with Manchester City's Erling Haaland. On the other hand, Everton faced a challenging period, with the club appealing against a two-point deduction for breaching Premier League financial rules. Despite the setback, Everton manager Sean Dyche remained focused on moving forward, acknowledging that the team needed to improve their performance.

Reflecting on the match, Dyche described it as a "collective down day" for Everton, emphasizing the need to be more clinical in front of goal. With Everton sitting in 16th place, just two points above the relegation zone, the team faces a tough battle to climb up the table. Meanwhile, Chelsea extended their unbeaten streak to eight games and moved up to ninth place in the league, just one point behind West Ham.
