Arouna Kone

The striker was in fine form as he bagged himself a perfect hat-trick against the Black Cats.

Everton’s 6-2 win over Sunderland on Sunday afternoon was one that saw a number of their star men put in top performances.

However, it was one man in particular who stole the show as striker Arouna Kone bagged himself a perfect hattrick to get half of his side’s goals on the day.

It was an impressive performance from the Ivorian, who has returned to full fitness this season to play a big part in the Blues side alongside fellow striker Romelu Lukaku.

We decided to take a look at his stats from the victory to see just how good he was on the day.

Starting with the obvious, Kone was in clinical form in the game as he secured his hattrick from just four shots in total in the game.

Elsewhere, his all round game was impressive as he misplaced just six passes from 56 throughout, a passing success of 89%.

In fact, he was on form with possession in general as he registered 72 touches in total, with just three of those proving to be unsuccessful ones, a success rate of 95%.

An impressive performance from Kone then, with him earning a new deal as a result of the appearance against the Black Cats, on this kind of form, Evertonians will agree that it is more than deserved.
