Everton defender Jagielka hails 2-goal Fellaini

Everton defender Phil Jagielka hailed goalscorer Marouane Fellaini after their draw at Fulham.

Fellaini struck both of Everton's goals in the 2-2 result.

“Felli scored with two fantastic finishes,” Jagielka told evertonfc.com. “First half I thought he was good but second half he was special. Right from the first minute, he brought it down on his chest and you know that he is going to be a handful.

“He proved that because his first goal was good but his second was even better.

“He manages to kill a ball quite well. If you have ever tried to control a 40-yard pass from me on your chest it’s not the easiest thing in the world! But he manages to pick up the flight really well and cushion it down.

“I think he stands out, along with Peter Crouch, as a player who can use his chest to his advantage.

“When Felli is in that sort of form it not only excites the fans but also the players around him know that if it’s played up there it will stick and we can play off him.”
