Jagielka calls for performance

Last Updated: 27th February 2016

Everton skipper Phil Jagielka has called for his team mates to deliver a 'performance to remember' when Everton meet Newcastle in the Capital One Cup final.

The blue half of Merseyside go into the Capital Once Cup final in the knowledge that they beat Newcastle by 4 goals to 1 back in November. However, Toffees captain Phil Jagielka has stated that the Premier League result means nothing and his team mates need to play with no fear and take the game to Newcastle. He also stressed how much he wanted to give the fans a day to remember when the two sides meet again at Wembley on Sunday.

"We need to go out there and show no fear," Jagielka told Sky Sports.

"So far this season, our success has come from going out there and taking it to our opponents. We need to make sure we do this on Sunday. For a lot of the lads this will be a first Wembley final and we need to make sure that we aren't overcome by the emotion of the occasion."

"We know exactly how Newcastle are going to play, they'll come at us early and try and find an early goal. What we need to do is make sure we don't let them do that. We need to be the side giving our fans something to cheer about, not the other way around. I can honestly say that the Everton fans are the best set of fans in the Premier League and it's about time we gave them something to celebrate. We're all desperate to win this match and end 21 years without a trophy at Goodison Park."
Man, fantastic progress here! Good luck in the C1 final, the form you've been in, I'm sure it'll be a breeze ;)
fantastic progress with my beloved everton(only 2nd beloved: first is LFC :P )
Cheers guys!

Ferguson: 'A perfect day'

Last Updated: 28th February 2016

Everton manager Duncan Ferguson has hailed his side after the Toffees ended 21 years without a trophy by beating Newcastle by four goals to nil in the Capital One Cup final.

The men from Merseyside dominated the game from the kick off and could have been ahead in the first minute if not for a wonderful Krul save in the Newcastle goal. This set the tone and Everton romped to a 4-0 win to lift the Capital One Cup for the first time in their history. The win also marked the first piece of silverware for the Merseyside club since the FA Cup and Community Shield wins in 1995.

"It was an incredible performance to cap a perfect day for us," admitted Ferguson.

"There is no doubt that we dominated the game from start to finish and I think that Newcastle were a little shell shocked by what they came up against. Every single player in white out there today was fantastic, I can't fault any of them. Leighton (Baines) showed why he is an England international, Daryl Janmaat couldn't cope with him. Today's result will certainly open the eyes of a few people, that's for sure. We are the real deal and fully deserve the success we are currently enjoying."

"Obviously our focus immediately switches back to the Premier League and the FA Cup with an important FA cup replay against Man City coming up on Wednesday. We want to keep fighting for the Premier League title and the FA Cup but tonight is all about today and I'm sure the players will celebrate this moment long into the night, and so they should."

Ferguson calls for Deulofeu callup

Last Updated: 7th March 2016

Everton manager Duncan Ferguson has called on Spain manager Roberto Martinez to give winger Gerard Deulofeu a chance at national level.

Deulofeu has been in excellent form so far this season and has been earning plaudits from pundits, fans and fellow professionals alike. The 21 year old winger has already been named as player of the match for Everton on three occasions this season and looks very good value for the 4.3 million pound fee Everton paid for him in 2015.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Ferguson said:

"Gerard is in the form of his life He has been phenomenal for us and I find it very strange that he hasn't been given a chance at national level. From what I can see, Roberto Martinez is not looking beyond La Liga for his national side selection and that is a mistake."

"In my opinion, Gerard is better than Isco and it is about time that he was rewarded for his series of fantastic performances. However, the decision is not mine to make and I can only hope that Gerard gets his chance at some point soon. Roberto knows what Gerard can do"
