Everton defender Phil Jagielka is delighted to be wearing the captain's armband.
The 30-year-old has been in good form since he returned and he has also been captaining the side due to the absence of club skipper Phil Neville through injury.
"Phil has obviously been giving me a bit of stick," Jagielka said.
"He's about 90 now but he's a fantastic captain. He was texting all the lads before the game but it's always nice to put the captain's armband on."
