The forward scored a perfect hattrick as the Toffees won 3-1, but elsewhere his stats were also impressive.
The Scottish forward managed to bag himself a perfect hat-trick in the win over the champions, scoring with his head and either foot to guide his side to their eye-catching result.
And, in so doing, he became the first player to score a hat-trick against a Jose Mourinho side in the Premier League, which is a feat in itself. Aside from his goalscoring, though, the Everton striker had an excellent game in a number of areas.
We took a look at his stats to see just how good his performance was.
|Match||Shots||On Target||Goals||Chances Created||Shots On Target Assisted||Dribble|
|Touches||Unsuccessful Touches||Minutes Played|
|Steven Naismith||Everton vs Chelsea||3||3||3||3||2||100%||46||0||81|
Starting with the obvious, Naismith managed three goals in the game - but that was even more impressive considering he only had three shots in the game. Elsewhere, it seems he was also playing a creative role in the side, with three attempted assists during the game, and two of those being on target, a success rate of 66%.
His attacking threat was also evident in his dribbling, with him enjoying a 100% success rate in that area, as well. The Toffees man ended up taking 46 touches in 81 minutes, with all of those being successful.
It was an impressive all-round display from Naismith, then, who after this performance will surely be pushing for a first-team spot when Everton take on Swansea City next time around.
