Everton skipper Phil Jagielka says manager Roberto Martinez is excited about what he's seen from his squad in preseason.

Everton were comfortable winners against Blackburn Rovers on the weekend.

Martinez told evertonfc.com: "We're still building up for the start of the season and hopefully when you speak to me in a few more weeks we'll be converting even more chances and looking more solid at the back.

"The manager is excited with the potential he sees and that is the state of play at the moment. We're nothing like a finished project yet, but we put in a really good performance. We're a little bit disappointed to concede the goal, but other than that I thought we pretty much controlled the game.
