( Byrne/PA via AP)LIVERPOOL, England — Wayne Rooney claimed his first-ever hat trick for Everton with a stunning goal from his own half in a 4-0 thrashing of West Ham on Wednesday in the Premier League.Hammers goalkeeper Joe Hart unintentionally set up Rooney’s wonder strike in the 66th minute after racing out on the right-hand side of his area and sliding to end Everton’s attack. Or so he thought. Hart’s angled clearance went to Rooney who was still inside the center circle. Rooney blended control with power to send the ball traveling the entire West Ham half and over the heads of West Ham’s defense with Hart still stranded.ADVERTISEMENT It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Hart also played a role in Rooney’s 18th-minute opener after bringing down Dominic Calvert-Lewin to give away a penalty. Rooney stepped up and sent the ball low to Hart’s right. The England goalkeeper did well to save it, only for the ball to loop back up for Rooney to easily head in an empty net.Rooney added a second goal 10 minutes later when the ball fell to him unmarked in the area and he calmly swept in a right-footed shot.West Ham had a chance to get back in the game after 58 minutes when Ashley Williams carelessly gave away a penalty after hacking Diafra Sakho down but Jordan Pickford did well to save Manuel Lanzini’s spot kick.Like Hart, Pickford dived low to his right. Unlike Hart, Pickford pushed the ball away from any danger.Ashley Williams headed in a fourth in the 78th.Everton is up to 13th with 15 points from 14 games. While Allardyce is adept at turning clubs around, Everton’s situation may not be as bad as feared by many fans.ADVERTISEMENT Bulls’ Niko Mirotic accepts Portis apology over fight Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Margot Robbie talks about filming ‘Bombshell’s’ disturbing sexual harassment scene Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny “It’s one of, if not, the best goal(s) I’ve scored.
