Everton attacker Gordon values hat-trick in victory at Western Sydney Wanderers

Everton attacker Anthony Gordon was delighted with his hat-trick for their 5-1 win against Western Sydney Wanderers on Saturday.

Neal Maupay and Tom Cannon - with his maiden First-Team goal - also scored as the Blues produced an impressive attacking display for the thousands of Evertonians in attendance in Sydney.

Gordon wants to use his hat-trick as a springboard for when Everton return to action against Wolves at Goodison Park on Boxing Day.

Speaking to evertontv, Gordon said: "I have been practising that particular finish for the third goal with Joe (Edwards) so I am really proud to see it come to light.

“It shows my dedication because I have missed that chance over and over again. I was tired towards the end of the game, already on two goals, I could have been satisfied but I wasn't and it just shows that repetition in training has come to fruition, so I am really proud and big thanks to Joe as well.

“For me especially, this was a really good game to get a bit of momentum. I feel like I have been a bit out of form given my capabilities, so I think that was a big game for me.

“I'm not going to stop (over the break), I am not going to relax. I don't think I've earned that."
