Sport: The three goals came in just 16 minutes.

The young Briton has thus far scored 19 goals in the league this season. It is only one behind the league’s top scorer, Erling Braut Haaland.

– He is in such hysterical shape that I struggle to draw parallels to anyone other than Lionel Messi, Viaplay expert Petter Veland said on the channel’s broadcast.

He elaborated by pointing out that the Briton had delivered a completely flawless innings, and that Palmer also has wild numbers to show for the last time.

It took just 13 minutes for Palmer to tap in his first goal with his left foot. The goal came after lovely collaboration with striker Nicolas Jackson.

And just five minutes later, the same duo were in action again. Then it was Jackson who went for the shot, but once again Palmer put the ball in the goal when Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford saved, but had to return.

Just before half an hour had been played, Palmer and Pickford again came into focus. The goalkeeper sent the ball straight into the legs of the two-goal scorer after a weak play, and the left-footed Palmer responded by knocking in his hat-trick from around 30 meters with his right foot.

– Here he does it in the most humiliating way, and he does everything himself again, commented Andreas Toft on Viaplay.

The aforementioned Jackson made it 4-0 just before the break in what turned out to be a nightmare period for an Everton side struggling in the relegation battle.

The Liverpool club has been deducted a total of eight points this season for breaching the Premier League’s financial rules. The last two points have been appealed.

The fight is still going on.
