BBC Sport - Everton 3-1 Chelsea: Roberto Martinez proud of Steven Naismith
Martinez praises Naismith mentality
- From the section Football
Everton boss Roberto Martinez says he is "incredibly impressed and proud" of hat-trick hero Steven Naismith after his side's 3-1 win over Chelsea at Goodison Park.
Naismith came on for the injured Muhamed Besic early in the game and headed in Brendan Galloway's cross before rifling in a shot to put the Toffees 2-0 up. The visitors responded through Nemanja Matic, but Naismith slotted in again with a late angled strike to complete his treble.
Naismith is the sixth player to score a hat-trick after coming on as a sub in a Premier League game.
