Jagielka finished off his strong season with nine clearances and two blocked shots in a 1-0 loss to Tottenham on Sunday.

Jagielka was named Everton player of the year last week and showed why on Sunday. He played in all but one game this season and finished the season with a surprising four goals. With that said, his defensive abilities is what makes him so valuable to Everton.

Jagielka picked up Everton's Player of the Year and Goal of the Season awards at the team banquet following a strong close to the season, reports the Daily Mail.

Everton had their share of troubles in the first part of the season, but were able to regroup in the second half. The captain said the personal awards were nice, but he would rather be fighting with the team for a spot in the European tournaments for next season.

Jagielka scored a header goal in extra-time and has seven clearances in the 3-2 loss to Aston Villa Saturday.

Jagielka has been fantastic this year and may be the favorite to win Everton player of the year with his impressive defensive play. Jagielka has also found some scoring form grabbing three goals and scoring the goal of the year for Everton in the Mercyside Derby. While Jagielka is not much of a fantasy option, he has proven to be a very valuable player this season. Look for him to have another strong performance against Sunderland next Saturday.

Jagielka scored the winning goal in the 1-0 win over Southampton Saturday.

It was far from his spectacular finish in the Mercyside Derby, but a goal is a goal. It was a poorly defended corner that was simply poked in by Jagielka off a Barry cross. Jagielka has had one of his best seasons in an Everton shirt and he may be the favorite to win player of the year for Everton with his fantastic defense and timely goals. Jagielka also contributed 13 clearances in the match and has been named player of the match for the second game in a row. Jagielka and Everton travel to Wales next Saturday to take on Swansea in their next match.

Jagielka put on a defensive display Sunday as he has seven aerials won, two tackles, two crosses, and an incredible 26 clearances in the 2-1 win over QPR.

Jagielka is the defensive stud for Everton and he truly showed up today clearing ball after ball. Jagielka is no fantasy option as he only has eight shots in the entire season, but he is arguably Everton's most valuable player with his amazing defense. Jagielka and Everton take on Southampton in their next match on April 4th.

Jagielka was Everton's best player Wednesday as he made two tackles and an incredible 18 clearances in the 1-0 loss to Chelsea.

Without Jagielka, Everton would have probably lost by multiple goals and he nearly carried his team to a big clean sheet, but the team was undone late after a red card by Gareth Barry. Jagielka has been great defensively and he also has the goal of the year for Everton in the Mercyside Derby early in the season. He'll continue to start and be a reliable defensive player, but not as effective as a fantasy option as he doesn't contribute in typical fantasy categories. Everton and Jagielka host Leicester in their next match on the 22nd.

Jagielka had a fine game Saturday, making 16 clearances en route to a clean sheet in the 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Jagielka added five interceptions and was the defensive catalyst for the clean sheet. Jagielka is the captain and when he plays well, it sets the whole team in motion to play much better than they have been. He will need to show up again next Saturday when Everton hosts big rivals Liverpool.

Jagielka had to be stretchered off after suffering an ankle injury during Friday's match against Stoke City, and he is unlikely to play Sunday against Newcastle, manager Roberto Martinez said after the game..

Antolin Alcaraz replaced Jagielka on Friday, and he could take his spot in the starting XI for Sunday's match, as John Stones also suffered a knock during the game.
