    Just been talking to my Son about him bagging another hat trick and the season is only 3 games old.

    The secret - Ancelotti has took him to one side and told him he's a number 9 so stay in the middle up front and to stop drifting out wide to come back in. It's working a treat. Can Warne tell this to Smith.

    Tonight's write up on him....

    Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored his second hat-trick of the season as Everton booked their place in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals, but the cost of victory against West Ham may turn out to be a heavy one.

    Calvert-Lewin put the home side in front with a well-taken 11th-minute effort after Michael Keane had picked him out with an excellent chipped pass over the Hammers' defence.

    The England forward sealed victory with two goals in six minutes near the end, taking his tally in what is turning into a superb season to eight.

    His second was a typical poacher's effort, the 23-year-old tucking home the rebound after Alex Iwobi's shot had bounced back off a post. Calvert-Lewin then got beyond the West Ham defence to finish off Gylfi Sigurdsson's through ball to complete another fantastic treble.

    Richarlison had earlier put Everton back in front with a deflected shot after Robert Snodgrass had briefly pulled the visitors level just after half-time.

    However, the Brazilian quickly abandoned his attempt to continue after having treatment to his left leg. And within eight minutes, his compatriot Allan was joining him in the dressing room after indicating he had pulled his groin.

    The manner both men headed down the tunnel did not indicate a swift return and as Jonjoe Kenny had to be replaced before the break, the injuries cast a shadow over an otherwise excellent night for Carlo Ancelotti's men.

    His side have now won six games in a row and if they were to beat Brighton on Saturday, it would represent the club's best start to a season since 1894.

    Super Calvert-Lewin

    In a week in which England boss Gareth Southgate names his squad for a first international triple-header, Calvert-Lewin could not have done much more to press his claims for inclusion.

    Scorer of that famous winning goal when England won the Under-20s World Cup in 2017, Calvert-Lewin is emerging as one of the stars of the early weeks of the season.

    One of the most satisfying aspects of his game at present is the way he hunts down chances.

    He showed strength in holding off Declan Rice as he controlled Keane's lofted pass for Everton's opener and then read the play superbly to ensure he was onside before latching onto Sigurdsson's short pass for his second.

    The third was the easiest technically, but the number of times leading strikers of the past say forwards should gamble, shows Calvert-Lewin is learning fast.

    It meant he became the first player to score hat-tricks in successive home games under Ancelotti since Cristiano Ronaldo - not bad company to be in.
