Everton defender Phil Jagielka will play a part in the final two months of the season after returning from a knee injury.
The veteran center-half has missed the last four Premier League games after dealing with a minor knee problem for much of the year. However, with Ashley Williams set to miss the next three matches due to suspension, Jagielka returns just at the right time and is in contention to face Brighton this weekend, according to manager Sam Allardyce: "Phil is back in the squad after his knee injury. We now need to decide whether we draw on his experience for Saturday...For me, Phil might be a very important part of that and Leighton is pushing for a start as well, so hopefully we can get back on track against Brighton."

Everton will be forced into at least one change for the visit of Brighton this weekend.

Phil Jagielka, Funes Mori and Leighton Baines are all options for Sam Allardyce as Ashley Williams begins a 3-game ban following his dismissal at Turf Moor in game week twenty-nine. The sending-off capped a truly miserable afternoon as Burnley came from behind to condemn the Toffees to their fifth successive Premier League defeat on the road [their last win away from Goodison Park came at Newcastle on December 13]. Fortunately, Everton fair a little better at home, and a victory on Saturday would make it three wins on the spin and almost guarantee their top-flight status for another season. James McCarthy [broken leg] and Eliaquim Mangala [knee surgery] will miss the remainder of the campaign, but goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg is on the verge of a return after going under the knife back in October to remedy a hernia problem.

Everton caretaker manager David Unsworth confirmed that defender Phil Jagielka is back in the mix this weekend.

The veteran defender has often been rested in the club's Europa League matches this season, as he was on Thursday as the Toffees took a beating from Atalanta. However, defender Mason Holgate looks set to miss out as he shakes off a groin injury. The club will already be without Tom Davies and Oumar Niasse due to suspension. Said Unsworth: "Phil, Mason and Morgan have all trained the last couple of days. For Mason, it’s probably a little too early for him, but Morgan and Phil should be fine. We’ll have one more training session and see how they come through that but hopefully all will be okay.

Everton captain Phil Jagielka said he is hoping to use his current run of form to impress Ronald Koeman ahead of the summer.

Out of favor and on the bench, the 34-year-old looked to be on his way out during the winter transfer window with Sunderland and West Ham interested. But Jagielka has started every game over the past two months following injuries to Ramiro Funes Mori and Seamus Coleman. Now, the defender says he wants to stay at the club for the final year of his contract: "I am delighted to be here. I have been here a long time now. I have got at least one more year on my contract and I feel as though I have got a lot more football in me. It is up to me to come back in pre-season and prove to the manager that I am not too bad and hopefully I can stick around."

Phil Jagielka sure is making the most of his return to the starting lineup with another goal in a 3-1 win against Burnley.

The Everton captain, who dropped out of Ronald Koeman's favor and starting lineup for more than a month, has proven himself with his second chance as a starter due to injuries to Seamus Coleman and Ramiro Funes Mori. At one point in January he heavily considered a move to Sunderland and West Ham, but now Jagielka has scored three goals in his last three games for the Toffees. He started the scoring in the 49th minute with a header following a corner kick, before Burnley equalized shortly after. But Everton benefitted from a Ben Mee own goal off a Ross Barkley shot in the 71st before Romelu Lukaku added his requisite goal-a-game after turning in Leighton Baines' pass in the 74th.

Everton will surely look back on Tuesday night as a couple of massive points that got away following a 1-1 draw with Manchester United.

The Toffees came within the final minute of stoppage time of moving into fifth place in the table (although with two games in hand) before a Zlatan Ibrahimovic penalty kick split the points. Everton put together a tremendous effort at Old Trafford with Ronald Koeman looking to become the first manager to ever win three matches against Manchester United at home. Phil Jagielka scored a brilliant goal in the 22nd minute after connecting on Ashely Williams' looping header. Off a corner kick, Williams sent the ball to the far post, where Jagielka fought with Marcos Rojo for position before flicking his right foot at the pass, which went between David De Gea's legs for the lead. But Williams' handball in the area in the final minute of the match would give Ibrahimovic the equalizer.

Everton manager Ronald Koeman confirmed that defender Phil Jagielka will remain at the club for the rest of the season.

Rumors in recent weeks have linked Jagielka with a winter exit, with West Ham and Sunderland interested. Despite making only three appearances in the last nine Premier League matches, Jagielka is set to stay at the club on deadline day. Said Koeman: "I spoke to Jags about his situation and he accepted it.He knows he needs to fight like every other player that is maybe not as involved (as they would like to be) or is not starting because we need competition...I understand it’s difficult for Jags because he’s the captain but we’d like to keep him as he can play an important role to the end of the season."

Everton captain Phil Jagielka became the latest England player to drop out of the national team after sustaining a thigh injury.

The Everton center-half will join Manchester City's Raheem Sterling and Stoke City defender Glen Johnson in missing World Cup qualifiers against Malta and Slovenia this week in what will be interim manager Gareth Southgate's first games in charge of England since Sam Allardyce's dismissal. The new manager is not expected to make anymore call-ups after bringing in Burnley defender Michael Keane. Jagielka will return to Everton for treatment, but he is expected to be available for the Toffees' upcoming match with Manchester City.

John Stones and Phil Jagielka will miss Everton’s first pre-season friendly at Barnsley on Saturday through injury.

While Stones has been linked with a summer move away, the club have been keen to stress that a minor muscular problem has denied him a return to his former stomping ground, although he could be back on Tuesday to face MK Dons. Jagielka on the other hand, looks to have suffered a recurrence of the hamstring strain which hampered his progress during the latter stages of the 2015/16 campaign. However, Ronald Koeman will be able to call upon the services those involved in France at Euro 2016 -- Seamus Coleman, James McCarthy, Aiden McGeady and Ross Barkley – with the new boss promising the quartet at least 45 minutes of action.

Everton confirmed that defenders Phil Jagielka and Seamus Coleman are in contention for this weekend's season finale.

The Toffees will host Norwich City this weekend without Roberto Martinez leading the way after the manager was sacked following Wednesday's loss to Sunderland. But they could receive a massive boost in the return of two starting defenders as Coleman and Jagielka have missed much of the last month with hamstring injuries and are hopeful to be ready for the European championships with official rosters set to be released in the next week. If both defenders are cleared to start, that could push Matthew Pennington and Ramiro Funes Mori back to the bench.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez is holding out hope that Phil Jagielka can return from a hamstring injury for the season finale against Norwich.

Jagielka was somehow able to face Manchester United in the club's FA Cup semifinal loss over the weekend despite not being medically cleared to return from a hamstring injury against Watford at the beginning of the month. But Martinez said that the club will monitor the captain after he aggravated the injury against United: "Obviously, he is going to be missing for a few games now and it is too early to tell whether or not that will be the end of his season or if he will make the final game of the campaign [against Norwich City]." But Martinez will have to find a replacement, likely Muhamed Besic, for this weekend with Ramiro Funes Mori suspended.

Phil Jagielka may not play again this season after aggravating a hamstring injury during the FA Cup semi-final loss to Man United on Saturday.

Roberto Martinez revealed during Fridays’ pre-match media briefing that Jagielka was not 'medically fit' but he would consider the defenders feelings when deciding his FA Cup line-up. However, the decision to involve the 33-year-old appears to have backfired, as now, he is not only at risk of missing the remainder of the domestic campaign, but the injury could also rule him out of Euro 2016 after playing the full 90 minutes. The potential loss of Jagielka is a massive blow for Everton who are already without the suspended Funes Mori and the injured Seamus Coleman. The Toffees season is petering out and after another disappointing year, many predict Martinez will be relieved of his duties in the summer.

Roberto Martinez said he wasn't optimistic that Phil Jagielka will be available for the weekend FA Cup semifinal against Manchester United.

Jagielka has missed the last three matches due to a hamstring injury and was schedule to be ruled out until the end of the month. But with the club in such a crunch without Ramiro Funes Mori and Seamus Coleman, the manager said Jagielka has a chance to prove his fitness: "Medically, I wouldn't expect Phil to be fit, that's the truth. But, knowing Phil, he wants to try everything possible to be available, so we're not going to say, ‘No', and it makes sense to keep monitoring him for as long as he can."

Everton manager Roberto Martinez confirmed the club will be without its captain for at least one week due to a hamstring injury.

Phil Jagielka sustained the injury late over the weekend in the club's 1-1 draw against Watford and has been ruled out for the club's match against Crystal Palace on Wednesday as well as the weekend match with Southampton at the very least. Martinez said the hope is to have Jagielka back for the club's FA Cup semifinal against either West Ham or Manchester United at the end of the month: "At that point we will have to assess it on a daily basis. It is such a congested fixture list that it would be dangerous to give a date on when he will be back. It is too early to make an assessment for the semi-final. Phil is always a quick healer and we will see how the treatment affects his recovery. We will have a better idea on Monday or Tuesday next week."

Phil Jagielka is a "serious doubt" for Wednesdays’ trip to Selhurst Park after the Everton defender sustained a hamstring injury late in the game against Watford.

Roberto Martinez confirmed "it’s too early to tell" if Jagielka will miss the upcoming FA Cup semi-final but admitted "it doesn’t look good. The 33-year-old will be assessed over the next 24 hours. Funes Mori is poised to return to the starting XI against Crystal Palace having lost his place to John Stones in recent weeks. Ross Barkley was also forced off after taking a knock to the knee at Vicarage Road although the problem is not thought to be serious.
