After scoring his first Premier League goal for Chelsea FC on Saturday with his left foot, the Hershey, Pa. native didn’t wait long to tack on his second and third goals, completing a “perfect” hat trick with a right-footed goal and a header in a 4-2 win at Burley.

All three goals came inside an hour for the 21-year-old, who became just the second American to record a Premier League hat trick and the first since Clint Dempsey did it for Fulham in 2012.
