Brighton have the Premier League’s next goalscoring sensation on their hands after Evan Ferguson scored a hat-trick against Newcastle.
The Republic Of Ireland striker put the Seagulls 3-0 up against Newcastle in a performance that showed exactly why he’s being hailed as the real deal.
His first goal showed an incredible poacher’s instinct as he pounced on an error from Nick Pope to slot home from close range.
His second came via a wonderful curling effort from outside the penalty area, while the hat-trick was wrapped up with a left-footed effort that took and deflection and wrong-footed Pope to end up in the back of the net.
It is Ferguson’s first-ever Premier League hat-trick – a staggering feat for a player his age.
At 18 years and 318 days, Ferguson is only the fourth player to score three in a top flight fixture since 1992, following in the footsteps of Michael Owen, Robbie Fowler and Chris Bart-Williams.
