Everton's Phil Jagielka admits team-mate Marouane Fellaini is "frustrating as hell" for defenders when he displays the form which caused Manchester United such problems at Goodison Park.

The 24-year-old was the dominant force throughout Monday night's match and capped an impressive performance with the only goal early in the second half. Jagielka is well aware of the 6ft 3in Belgium midfielder's talents having faced him in training every week but accepts it is a different prospect handling him in a competitive match.

"It's a little bit different in training as you can kick him, pinch him and pull his hair and get away with it but when he is switched on like he was it is nearly impossible to mark him," said the centre-back.
