Jagielka injury blow for Everton

Everton will be without defender Phil Jagielka for up to six weeks because of a knee injury.

Jagielka was one of three Everton players to leave the club's 2-1 defeat to Bolton on Wednesday with an injury after he limped off the field following a challenge on David Ngog.

The club has confirmed that Jagielka will "probably out for up to six weeks" with medial ligament damage, depriving the Toffees of their best defender.

The 29-year-old has started all 19 of Everton's games in the league this season, while injuries continue to mount for the club with Leon Osman and Jack Rodwell being added to a list of injured players that already includes Tim Cahill and Ross Barkley.
