Marco Silva defends Phil Jagielka after Fulham disaster
Marco Silva was very quick to defend Phil Jagielka after a disappointing display from the former England international against Fulham during the weekend. Everton fell to a 2-0 defeat against Fulham during the weekend, as the club lost a golden opportunity to make way into the top seven places of the league table. Everton were struggling in the midway point of the campaign, but they have now been able to find the winning touch once again. The recent wins over Chelsea and Arsenal have put Everton back in the frame for a Europa League spot along with the likes of Wolves and Leicester City.
“It’s easy to look just at one player.If you want to say that we lost because of Jagielka, you are completely wrong. It was not. The team didn’t perform, and if you want to look for just one player it’s a big mistake,” said Jagielka. It is widely expected that Jagielka will be leaving Everton at the end of the campaign. His contract only has a few months to run and Everton are unlikely to renew the deal based on his recent performance.
