Everton was without captain Phil Jagielka for the club's 2-1 loss to Swansea City, but manager Roberto Martinez allayed fears it was due to another injury setback.
Said Martinez: "Jagielka has been out for a long, long time and then he came back last week and played three games in seven days.Medically, it was the right thing to give him a bit of recovery time and make sure we used the squad. The squad is ready to cope with players missing and, clearly, Phil Jagielka will be refreshed for what is ahead." Everton clearly missed Jagielka's presence along the back-line against Swansea, but the Toffees have their sights on this week's massive League Cup semifinal second leg, when they head to Manchester City with a one-goal lead. Meanwhile, Bryan Oviedo started for the club against Swansea despite being taken off on a stretcher in Week 22. Jan 25 - 8:35 AM

Everton could see the return of its captain within the next week as Phil Jagielka is set to return to match action in before the Week 21 match against Manchester City.

Jagielka has missed the last nine matches due to a knee injury, but manager Roberto Martinez said he hopes the center-back could be available in next week's cup fixtures: "I think the weekend could be a bit too early but we've got the next three games. He will be involved - if it's not the Spurs game or the Man City game in the [Capital One] Cup, it will be in the FA Cup third round. I would say in the next seven to 10 days." Once Jagielka returns to the full strength, it will likely spell the end of Ramiro Funes Mori's spell in the starting XI.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez said he is optimistic about having Phil Jagielka back from a knee injury for the New Year as he progresses in his recovery.

Martinez is hoping to have the captain back for the fixtures following the club's December 28 fixture against Stoke City after missing the last seven weeks with a medial ligament injury. The manager said Jagielka is already ahead of schedule by running on grass and will soon join the group in training: "The next step is to involve him in more football, and the way Jags is, I feel we’ll see him back available very, very soon." Ramiro Funes Mori has filled in during Jagielka's absence and will continue to do so during the festive period following a season-ending injury to Tyias Browning.

Everton's injury crisis in defence could soon come to an end as captain Phil Jagielka is expected to return from a knee injury before the New Year.

Manager Roberto Martinez confirmed the defender is ahead of schedule after missing the past six weeks and is optimistic he could return during the festive period: "Realistically we are talking about that group of fixtures after Boxing Day. Stoke or Spurs at home - that week is a realistic target for Phil to come back." Meanwhile, Martinez said he wouldn't rush Leighton Baines back into the starting lineup after making his seasonal Premier League debut over the weekend. The left-back picked up a knock upon his return in the League Cup last week and is still gaining match fitness.

Phil Jagielka could miss around two months after a scan revealed the Everton and England defender damaged medial knee ligaments at The Emirates on Saturday.

Jagielka was injured by "an unnecessary challenge," said Martinez post-match. "Oxlade-Chamberlain puts his foot up when the referee has already given the free-kick." Further tests have now confirmed that the 33-year-old is likely to miss the remainder of 2015 although the prognosis might have been a lot worse. "The way the injury happened with the rotation of the knee, it could have been anything really." Fortunately, only the medial ligament was damaged with no additional structural problems. Jagielka is expected to miss no "longer than 8-9 weeks," although that will depend on his "progress over the next few weeks." Argentine Funes Mori – who is yet to taste defeat in his four appearances for Everton - will deputise.

Everton were much improved at The Emirates on Saturday but the Toffees left empty handed while a knee injury picked up by Phil Jagielka is the cause of much concern.

"It'll take probably 48 hours to find out about Phil, but it's not good, clearly," said Martinez post-match. "He never leaves the playing field. It's a problem in his right knee." Jagielka looks to have some structural damage – possibly ligaments – which could side-line the defender for some time, although the severity will determine for how long. During the interim, Funes Mori will provide the defensive cover centrally. Everton were close to having a full complement of players back amongst their ranks with Baines, Besic, Hibbert and Pienaar nearing a return but this latest setback is likely to keep Jagielka out for at least a month.

Everton still can’t beat their city rivals, but Martinez looks secure in his role…

It is now 10 PL matches since Everton beat Liverpool, but Roberto Martinez is not worrying about his job. In fact the future looks bright. Young full-backs Brendan Galloway (19) and Tylas Browning (21) again made sure no-one noticed the absence of Seamus Coleman and Leighton Baines. Ramiro Funes Mori (24) impressed again, improving as the game went on. Ross Barkley (21) can be guilty of only seeing the most difficult pass, but is growing in stature and poise. And if Romelu Lukaku (still only 22, let’s not forget) can keep his setting on ‘unplayable’ mode all season, Everton will threaten the Top Six. Saying all that, veteran Phil Jagielka (33) is probably the player Martinez could least do without right now.

Everton look set to offer former Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic a return to the Premier League…

The blue half of Merseyside is a flutter with stories that Everton might be about to offer former Manchester United skipper Nemanja Vidic a return to the PL. The 33-year-old center-back - who won five PL titles and the Champions League with United – has never settled at Inter Milan and would be keen to return to the PL while he is able to perform at the top level. Everton are down to the bare bones in central defence, with no cover for Phil Jagielka and John Stones so the experience of Vidic might provide Roberto Martinez with just what he is looking for. Especially now an £8m move for Scott Dann has been snubbed with Crystal Palace demanding double that figure and offering Dann a new £65k deal.

Roberto Martinez is on pole position to sign Juventus center-back Angelo Ogbonna in a £7 million deal…

According to reports in Italy, Juventus are ready to listen to offers for center-back Angelo Ogbonna and Everton are ready to pounce. The 27-year-old made 25 appearances in Juve’s double-winning season and was on the bench for the Champions League final. But has struggled to nail down a regular first team spot. His availability has alerted West Ham and Southampton, but Roberto Martinez has been tracking the player all summer and thought to be favorite to land him for a fee in the region of £7m. Italian international Ogbonna will relish the chance to revive his career in the PL with the Euros coming at the end of the season and provide Everton with a quality alternative to John Stones and Phil Jagielka.

Everton and Sunderland are battling it out with each other – and German club Schalke – for the signature of Cagliari centre-back Davide Astori…

The 28-year-old Astori spent last season on loan at Roma – featuring in Champions and Europa League campaigns – but now faces a drop into Serie B with parent club Cagliari, who were relegated in his absence. This has alerted PL pair Everton and Sunderland, who are both in the market for central defensive cover. Sunderland are seeking a regular partner for Sebastian Coates, with neither John O’Shea nor Wes Brown convincing this season. Everton meanwhile are down to the bare bone of Phil Jagielka and John Stones, following the release of Sylvain Distin and Antolin Alcaraz – and no progress in their pursuit of Crystal Palace’s Scott Dann. Astori is an Italian international (10 caps) and likely to be available for somewhere in the region of £3 – 4 million.

Phil Jagielka scored an early goal that ended up being the winner in a 1-0 Everton win over Southampton.

The win is the third consecutive win for Everton, who are now practically safe from relegation. Southampton must feel disappointed once again as they were arguably the better team but just couldn't finish in front of goal. Ronald Koeman stated after that he was disappointed by the result but not the performance, which is a fair evaluation of what happened. The Saints must either get Grazianno Pelle back in form or find goals from another source, but the drought must end soon if they want to fight for a spot in a European competition.

Captain Phil Jagielka made a saving block but then deflected a Tomas Rosicky shot into his own net as Everton dropped a 2-0 decision to Arsenal.

Coming off a big boost in Europe Cup action and facing an Arsenal team who looked bad in Europe both clubs reverted to form as Arsenal won 2-0 at the Emirates. Everton had a few solid chances but they couldn't capitalize while their opponents were more clinical and rode that finishing to a win.

Phil Jagielka will be assessed game by game but is most likely out for New Year's Day.

All we know is that Jagielka will be assessed game by game and that he has ligament damage in his ankle. Ligament damage is a serious problem and the likely of him playing tomorrow is very close to zero. John Stones will also be assessed and is more likely to feature than Jagielka.

Roberto Martinez will be sweating on the fitness of a number of players ahead of the clash with Newcastle at St James’ Park in GW19.

The Toffees came through a particularly bruising encounter against Stoke having lost the game one nil and up to four of today's starters because of injury. In the first half alone over ten minutes of extra time were played as Phil Jagielka and John Stones [both ankle], Tim Howard [calf] and Ross Barkley [nose] all received treatment while Ryan Shawcross was left with a bloodied and bandaged head. Kevin Mirallas was also the recipient of a heavy Charlie Adam challenge during the second half. Howard and Jagielka remain the biggest doubts with Joel Robles and Antolin Alcaraz the likely benefactors in what the manager bills as a "pivotal" game on Tyneside – Everton are currently 13 points behind last season’s total at the same stage.

Phil Jagielka was solid in Everton's 3-1 win over QPR on Monday, finishing with nine fantasy points despite not getting a clean sheet.

Jagielka has had a fairly solid fantasy season and has improved in recent weeks with Everton's improvement on defense. He has had 10, 7, 4, and 9 fantasy points in the past four weeks, which is a reliable source of points. His price is still a bit high so we would shy away from him in the Yahoo! game. Feel free to use him in other formats where his price is more affordable.
