Everton fans react on Twitter to Phil Jagielka's injury

Everton defender Phil Jagielka is set to miss nine weeks worth of action.

Everton supporters have been left disappointed with the news that Phil Jagielka is set to miss the next nine weeks of action.

Jagielka picked up a knee injury against Arsenal, and he could be set for a protracted period on the sidelines, as he looks to return to fitness.

The news is a major blow for Everton, with Jagielka proving to be one of their most reliable performers over the campaign so far.

Jagielka's experience has been pivotal in his partnership with John Stones, and the England international will be missed by Roberto Martinez's side.

However, Everton supporters are fairly confident that they will be able to cope without their captain, as they have been impressed by Ramiro Funes Mori's displays to date.

Mori was snapped up by Everton during the summer transfer window, and he has largely been used as back-up so far.

When the Argentine has taken to the field he has impressed, though, and Everton fans are hoping that he can continue to prove his worth over the coming weeks. Here is the best reaction on social media site Twitter.
