Cole Palmer scored four goals as Chelsea put on an excellent display in their 6-0 thrashing of Everton in their English Premier League (EPL) encounter at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.

The young England international put on a majestic display to lead the Blues to a big win in front of their fans against a troubled Everton side battling multiple points deduction.

Nicholas Jackson and youngster Alfie Gilchrist were the other scorers on a night Chelsea boosted their chance of European football next season.

Chelsa scored four goals in the first period, with Palmer netting the first three in under 30 minutes.

The former Manchester City youngster exchanged passes with Jackson before slotting in from 20 yards for the opener, headed in from a rebound for his second, then lobbed Jordan Pickford from 40 yards out for his hattrick on 29 minutes. Jackson netted the fourth with a swivel and volley to put Chelsea fans in dreamland at the interval.

Palmer completed his quadruple of goals with a penalty before Gilchrist, a Chelsea academy product, rounded up scoring on 90 minutes with a volley from a rebound.

Palmer has now scored 20 goals in his first season at the club and has become the joint-top scorer in the EPL with Erling Haaland.

Speaking after the win that puts Chelsea on 47 points from 31 matches and in ninth position, Mauricio Pochettino, Chelsea manager, hailed his side’s improvement.

“I am so happy for him and the team,” he said. “We played some good games, but yes today I am happy with the performance, and we started the game really well.

“We show a different approach against Sheffield United and we spoke in the week we improved in different areas – today was the perfect game.”
