Two huge Premier League games this Sunday, Chelsea vs Arsenal and Manchester United vs Everton, with Phil Jagielka quite clear on what the Toffees will need to do in order to maximize their chances of getting a positive result at Old Trafford;
Stop Rom from scoring. The only way for us to come out on top in our battle with United is by stopping him scoring. It’s obviously vice-versa for him
the Everton captain told ESPN FC talking about Romelu Lukaku, his former teammate, whose goals are dearly missed by Jagielka and the rest of the squad.
We are obviously missing his goals. But the way football is, and the crazy way the market is, Rom left us. It’s the way it goes, but when you have played with and alongside somebody for a while, there is a friendship there
the England international said. Generally, he didn’t hold back praising the Manchester United striker, whom he knows all too well.
You normally get somebody who is physical but can’t shift. Once Rom gets going though, there is no catching him. He is still a young man, but he is just about coming to the part of his career when you expect him to kick on
Jagielka also said. Everton are traveling to Manchester having lost their last three matches in the Premier League and the Europa League, and not having scored a goal in over 300 minutes.
