In Chelsea’s resounding 6-0 triumph over Everton, Cole Palmer delivered a performance for the ages, shattering records along the way.

Palmer showcased his versatility by netting with his left foot, head, and right foot, completing a flawless hat-trick before the clock hit the half-hour mark, setting Chelsea on a commanding path with a three-goal lead.

Nicolas Jackson joined the scoring frenzy just before halftime, further increasing Everton’s woes. Palmer continued his onslaught in the second half, converting a penalty to compound Sean Dyche’s side’s misery.

Adding to the spectacle, Chelsea’s own academy talent, Alfie Gilchrist, made a memorable entrance from the bench, notching his inaugural senior goal and sealing Chelsea’s dominance.

Palmer’s heroics not only secured three crucial points for Chelsea but also etched his name in the annals of history. His lightning-fast hat-trick marked Chelsea’s quickest-ever in the Premier League, achieved within a blistering 29 minutes.

Following his stellar performance, Palmer now stands shoulder to shoulder with legends, matching Didier Drogba’s feat of scoring in consecutive Premier League home matches for Chelsea. Additionally, he boasts the distinction of being the first Chelsea player to score in seven consecutive Premier League home appearances.

The race for the Golden Boot intensifies with Palmer’s remarkable display. Tallying an impressive 20 goals in just 28 league outings, Palmer sits tied at the pinnacle alongside former teammate Erling Halaand. Their goal haul surpasses that of contenders like Ollie Watkins, Mohamed Salah, and others, positioning Palmer as a strong contender for the prestigious award last won by a Chelsea player in the 2009-10 season.

With the FA Cup final against Manchester City looming, Mauricio Pochettino pins his hopes on Palmer’s continued brilliance to secure silverware at Wembley.
