Everton manager David Moyes has eased fears defender Phil Jagielka could face a long spell on the sidelines.

The England centre-half was substituted with a thigh injury during Monday's impressive Barclays Premier League win at Manchester City.

The 28-year-old is still a major doubt for the Boxing Day clash against Birmingham at Goodison Park but Moyes does not expect his absence to be a lengthy one.

When asked how long he could be out, Moyes said at a press conference on Thursday: "I'm not sure.

"We're hoping that he might not be too long but he is certainly a doubt for the game against Birmingham, as is Johnny Heitinga, so we could have a problem at centre-half if we don't get one of them fit."
