Reports have emerged claiming that Everton ace Steven Naismith was thrilled with his hat-trick in victory over Chelsea.
Naismith didn’t realise he’d registered a ‘perfect’ hat-trick – one effected by strikes with the left foot, right foot and the head – until it was bellowed in his ear by a jubilant Phil Jagielka.
“It is dream stuff,” beamed Naismith to evertontv.
“I didn’t realise until Jags came up to celebrate and he was saying [it was a perfect hat-trick] in my ear.
“I’ve scored hat-tricks before but I don’t think I’ve managed a perfect one.
“It’s nice but the main thing is the win for the team.”
