Jags: Penalty miss cost us

Jagielka Everton thirdEverton captain Phil Jagielka says that the Blues missing a second half penalty gave West Ham the belief needed to score three goals and take all three points at Goodison Park this afternoon.

The Blues were leading 2-0 at the time and Jags says that the penalty miss from Romelu Lukaku cost Everton what would have been an impressive win when down to ten men.

He said, “Obviously with us getting the goal and then going down to ten men but doing so well and getting the second.

“Then, unfortunately, gave them some emphasis – obviously missing the penalty – then things went downhill from then.

“Sometimes sending off’s can galvanise you and get everyone together and I think that sort of helped us.

“Obviously towards the end having one less person didn’t help when we had our backs to the wall and I think the penalty would have been a turning point.

“It gave them that bit of belief that they could get something out of the game and, obviously, they did.

“We have a big cup game coming up at home and we have to try and perform as well as we have today, if not better, and try and get further in that competition.”
