Everton captain Phil Jagielka: Nice to look at table

Everton captain Phil Jagielka says they mustn't get carried away with their high-flying season start.

Another victory at Bournemouth on Saturday will equal the Club's post-War record for the best start to a league campaign, matching the achievements in 1969/70 when five victories and one draw was recorded in the opening six matches.

"It's been a while since we've enjoyed looking at the league table but we are not looking at other people's results yet," Jagielka told evertontv. “We need to keep going, keep grinding out the wins.

“If we have a look at the table 10 to 12 games in when that will give a rough idea of how everyone's starts have gone. We are only five games in - a good five games - but if we don't do well between now and Christmas then the start doesn't count for anything."
