Chelsea star, Cole Palmer, has bolstered his chances of winning the Premier League Golden Boot this season after an incredible performance against Everton on Monday night.

The Englishman was the biggest talking point after the Blues demolished the Toffees 6-0 during their Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge.

Palmer, who has enjoyed a dream start to life with the West Londoners, scored four of the six goals to help him climb up the league goal-scoring charts.

The youngster opened the scoring for his side in the 13th minute before he doubled the advantage five minutes later.

The former Manchester City ace went on to make it 3-0 in the 29th minute before he added his fourth of the match from the penalty spot in the 64th minute.

His incredible performance saw him record yet another hat-trick for Chelsea in just days, having scored another during his side's 4-3 dramatic win over Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.

Palmer's seven goals in just two matches have catapulted him to the summit of the goal-scorers charts in the Premier League with 20 so far.

The England international now sits joint-top with Manchester City hotshot, Erling Haaland, as the race for the Golden Boot heats up.

Haaland is looking to defend the crown, having carted home the prize last term in his debut season with the reigning English champions.

Aston Villa star, Ollie Watkins, is the other player firmly in the race for the individual award, having already scored 19 goals in the league.

Watkins netted his 19th of the season against Arsenal on Sunday, as Villa upset the title challengers 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium.

Meanwhile, Newcastle United's Alexander Isak is joint-third with Dominic Solanke and Mohamed Salah of Liverpool. The trio has scored 17 goals each so far this season.

In related news, Sports Brief also reported on Palmer receiving praise from Chelsea fans following his role in their 6-0 win against Everton.

Fans took to social media to praise the 21-year-old, who scored goals in the 13th, 18th, 29th, and 64th minutes amid his rich vein of form.
