Everton shocking home league form could cost the Toffee's European qualification, claims defender Phil Jagielka.

Four wins on the road have kept David Moyes' side in the running for a UEFA Cup spot.

"We kept our unbeaten run going, but we would all like to see our home form pick up.

"One win in the league here all season is not good enough.

"And this was the sort of game we would have expected to take three points from."

Jagielka said: "The fans are a bit quiet because we are not giving them much to shout about. For the home draw with Manchester United, the place was electric, so it is up to us to provide the fans with something that excites them.

"We are realists. We know it is up to us to pick up our home form, and that will then get the crowd going.

"The way this division is at the moment, if you lose a couple you are in a relegation fight. So we must just keep this unbeaten run going, and see where it takes us."
