MILAN -- A mix between Diego Maradona and Gonzalo Higuain?Plaudits dont get much better for a Napoli player, but that is just some of the praise that is being heaped on Dries Mertens after another fantastic display on Sunday. Martellus Bennett Jersey .After scoring a hat trick against Cagliari the previous week, Mertens went one better against Torino, putting four past England goalkeeper Joe Hart.Mertens completed his hat trick in nine first-half minutes and then saved the best until last -- a sublime chip into the far corner in the 80th minute.The Belgium winger is now drawing comparisons to Higuain for his number of goals and Maradona for his style of play.Indeed, Mertens fourth goal was Maradona-esque.Lets say Ive got a way to go, Mertens said when asked about the comparison.Maradona is still revered in Naples after leading the team to its only two league titles in 1987 and 1990.No one has scored successive hat tricks in Serie A since 1974, while it was the quickest treble since Andriy Shevchenko scored three in seven minutes for AC Milan in 2000.The last Napoli player to net four goals in a top-flight match was Giuseppe Savoldi on December 18, 1977 -- a gap of exactly 39 years.Mertens emergence has eased the pain caused by Higuains departure in the offseason. Higuain transferred to Juventus for an Italian-record 90 million euros ($100 million) after breaking a 66-year-old Serie A record with 36 goals for Napoli last season.Arkadiusz Milik was signed to replace him and scored seven goals in eight matches, but tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee while playing for Poland in October.As a result, Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri has been relying on a three-man forward line with Mertens as a falso nueve -- false No. 9 -- flanked by Jose Callejon and Lorenzo Insigne. And the trio is starting to gel.Mertens has netted eight goals in his past three matches in all competition, and a total of 10 in the league. Not bad for a player who is not even a forward.Hes scored 10 goals like Higuain or am I mistaken? Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis said after the 5-3 win over Torino.Both players are level in the scoring charts, with two goals less than Inter Milan forward Mauro Icardi, Roma striker Edin Dzeko and Torino youngster Andrea Belotti.I feel good playing in this team, Mertens said. We are doing a great job and the coach is instilling in us his way of playing, which I think is the best for this team.Unlike previous Napoli stars who have left the club at the height of their powers in recent years -- such as Edinson Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi, who went to Paris Saint-Germain, or Higuain -- Mertens seems to have a genuine love for the city.The 29-year-old Belgian, who joined from PSV Eindhoven in 2013, often posts pictures on social media of himself around Naples, along with captions calling the city home or saying no place Id rather be. Mertens and his wife also went to a Halloween party dressed as two of his teammates -- Insigne and Marek Hamsik.The latest photo Mertens posted, on Monday morning, was of a figurine of himself -- in his Napoli kit -- looking out over the city. Lance Kendricks Jersey . Thousands of fans at Mosaic Stadium will be cozying up to each other in an effort to stay warm in chilly temperatures and block the Prairie wind that locals say can knock your socks off. Paul Hornung Jersey .B. - Sebastien Auger made 44 saves as the Saint John Sea Dogs edged the visiting Acadie-Bathurst Titan 2-1 on Saturday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. http:///...vid-bakhtiari-jersey . Burris threw two TD passes, including a key 15-yard fourth-quarter strike to Bakari Grant that effectively countered a Toronto comeback bid and led Hamilton to a 33-19 victory. South Korean StarCraft II player Lee INnoVation Shin Hyung (Terran) took down Kim Stats Dae Yeob (Protoss), 4-0, in the grand finals of Intel Extreme Masters Gyeonggi in Gyeonggi, South Korea on Sunday for a $15,000 first prize.As the favorite to take down the tournament, INnoVation lived up to the billing and waded through the absolutely stacked 16-player field for a massive victory. After his dominant run, INnoVation could very well be the top Terran player in the world in the new patch for StarCraft II. The well-rounded Terran showed off exactly what his signature all-around play was about; whether it was defensive stances and holds against aggressive starts or late-game expertise, he was in top form.For Stats, this was yet another almost there finish. The cheesy but solid Protoss lost in a landslide in grand finals, but he proved to be a threat in the new patch for the foreseeable future. Stats looked every bit the part of a contender throughout the weekend.Game 1: Vaani Research StationINnoVation struck first on the first map with perfect counter play against Stats strategy to go to the air early. Stats timing attacks with Phoenix and Adepts put him behind INnoVations bio counter and he relinquished both the Protoss macro potential on Vaani Research Station and the map control. INnoVation demonstrated patience when he finally unleashed his stimmed bio army against the weaker ground forces of Stats for the quick victory.INnoVation 1:0 StatsGame 2: Habitation StationStats attempted a bit of a cheesy opener for early aggression aagainst INnoVation with a proxy Stargate and fast Oracles. Kyle Murphy Jersey. Unfortunately, INnoVations defense and response were perfectly timed. The cheese was thwarted by scouting and defensive structures at the main base and a timed defensive counter to the aggression on Stats expansion. INnoVation would counter-attack with multiple drops on the main mining base, the defensive front, and even the armies of Stats. INnoVation split up Stats forces and continued to mount relentless pressure until he pushed for the victory before the research of Psionic Storm was finished for Stats.INnoVation 2:0 StatsGame 3: WhirlwindStats went for another proxy Stargate on the bigger map, Whirlwind, to throw off INnoVations better late game strategies and play. Stats went for an all-in with Void Rays to potentially steal a victory on map three, but INnoVations scouting and defense were too quick. INnoVation set up bunkers with reinforcements to battle the push and took enough casualties for the 3-0.INnoVation 3:0 StatsGame 4: EchoUnexpectedly, INnoVation answered Stats cheesy openers with one of his own. A proxy Barracks and Factory next to the expansion of Stats caught him by surprise and dealt irreparable economic damage. Stats pulled all his workers from his main base, but INnoVations Cyclone and bio rush proved too lethal. INnoVations micro and unforeseen opener crushed the map and took down the set.INnoVation 4:0 Stats Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
