Wigan Athletic midfielder James McArthur has hailed the form of teammate James McCarthy.

He is currently away on international duty with Republic of Ireland for their World Cup qualifiers against Germany and the Faroe Islands but it is his impressive club form McArthur was keen to highlight.

"I felt he played his best game of the season at Sunderland a couple of weeks ago (in a 1-0 defeat) and he was fantastic again against Everton.

"He's gone from strength to strength this season and having known him for a long time and through working with him every day, I think he'll only get better.

"He's got a big role for his country now too and hopefully like the rest of us he can impress for his national team and return injury-free for the next league match against Swansea City."
