Everton defender Phil Jagielka was delighted captaining the team in victory over DC United.

Jagielka explained after the 3-1 win that guiding the Club's young players is one of the captain's roles he relishes.

He told evertonfc.com: "With the gaffer making me captain it is an added responsibility.

"I would like to think that if any of the young lads have any issues or need anything on or off the pitch they would come and see myself. There are a few of us in that category and it is a role I will be looking to do as often as possible."
