Jagielka admits he feels at home playing alongside Lescott after their spells in the same England youth sides and at Goodison Park.
"We made the first team at similar times, often played against each other, there's only a day between our birthdays, so we are pretty much the same age.
"We eventually got to play centre-half together at Everton and it just works, the communication, the way we play. Obviously left-foot, right-foot also helps as well. It just seems to work."
