Jagielka out for up to 4 weeks

Everton captain Phil Jagielka could be sidelined for up to four

weeks with a hamstring injury.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez said the England defender

picked up the injury during a loss to Sunderland on Boxing Day in

the Premier League. Jagielka missed his team’s 2-1 home victory

over Southampton on Sunday.

Martinez said Jagielka’s problem was related to the busy playing

schedule over the past month and said ”when you have the number of

games we play, it is understandable.”
