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."
