Fulham on Saturday.

Despite the Toffees conceding a last minute goal to prevent them from coming away with all three points at Craven Cottage, Jagielka has described the Belgian midfeilder’s performance as “special.”

The England international also claims that Fellaini’s ability to control the ball with his chest can make him a handful to play against.

He told Everton’s official website: “Felli scored with two fantastic finishes. First half I thought he was good, but second half he was special.

“Right from the first minute, he brought it down on his chest and you know that he is going to be a handful. He proved that because his first goal was good but his second was even better.

“He manages to kill a ball quite well. If you have ever tried to control a 40-yard pass from me on your chest it’s not the easiest thing in the world. But he manages to pick up the flight really well and cushion it down.”

Jagielka also went on to admit that he is disappointed Everton couldn’t kill the game off to ensure Fulham’s final minute equaliser wouldn’t affect the final result.

“I thought we played ok first half but in the second we played very well,” he added.

“We showed signs of how well we have been playing for most of the season. We took control of the game and got the two goals.

“We could have got a third goal, which would have killed the game off. It feels like two points lost.”
