Josh King Of Watford Stuns Everton With A Hat-trick In A 5-2 Comeback Victory

Posted by

Josh King was asked to explain the contrast between his barren stint at Everton last season and his first Premier League hat-trick, as well as kick-starting Claudio Ranieri’s Watford reign in spectacular way. “I never got given a chance,” he rightly asserted.

Everton showered him with presents upon his homecoming. As a result, Goodison Park became a suspicious and furious place.
One week after losing 5-0 to Liverpool, Ranieri’s players turned the tables on the Merseysiders, humiliating Everton and Rafael Bentez with a five-goal thrashing of their own. King was instrumental in the rout, but with a lot of help from his former teammates. In 11 games for Carlo Ancelotti’s side, the Norway international failed to score, and his last Premier League goal came on the day Bournemouth were relegated in July 2020. At Goodison, he was prolific, but not in an Everton shirt.

After falling behind to Tom Davies’ opener after three minutes, Ranieri was full of admiration for the clinical striker and the character exhibited by the entire Watford team.
