Phil Jagielka has implored Everton to kick on from their strong beginning to the Premier League campaign.

The Toffees sit fifth on the table, just four points behind league leaders Arsenal, having lost just once in 16 outings thus far.

With the hectic Christmas and New Year schedule looming, England defender Jagielka wants a similar amount of consistency from Everton as they look to push for a top-four finish this term.

"We had a pretty decent start to the season, we've carried that on, we've got a tough run of fixtures now where hopefully we'll pick up quite a few points over Christmas and keep ourselves in the running,” he said.

"The league has been quite strange this year. There's been a lot of teams beating other teams by some crazy scorelines but for us it's all about how we do.

"At the moment we're in pretty decent form and we've got some really vital games especially at home over the festive period.”
