Everton youngster Dan Gosling has praised Leon Osman for the way the midfielder has taken to the captaincy. The 28-year-old has a 100% winning record since wearing the armband in the absence of Phil Neville and then Joseph Yobo.
Gosling told the club's official website: "He's been here since he was a young lad so he knows the ins and outs of the whole club.
"He prepares everyone just like Nev and Yobo. It's been a bit strange having three captains already this season but they are all top lads.
"Ossie has got three out of three as captain and also scored a couple of goals, so he's proving himself pretty good with the armband.
