Everton defender Phil Jagielka says that it feels great to be on the winning side after his team beat Arsenal at Goodison Park this afternoon.
Jagielka was a late stand-in after Michael Keane took ill during the warm up, and popped up in the right place at the right time to get the goal.
It was his first goal in two years and proved to be the winning goal in a game where Everton should have scored more.
The Blues can now look up the table at a potential Europa League place, but Jagielka said that the target is just to keep going until the end of the season and see where they end up.
“It feels great,” said Jagielka.
“We’re trying to build a little bit of momentum towards the end of the season and the boys did fantastic today.
“They’re a very good team and it’s nice for us to keep the momentum going and beat one of the so-called bigger boys.
“Being in the right place at the right time is good and they’re the best goals, the tap in’s, but it was a team effort today.
“We just want to keep clean sheets and keep winning games and see where it takes us.”
