Stekelenburg: Will Phil Jagielka buy me dinner?

Maarten Stekelenburg will ask Phil Jagielka to buy him dinner after the goalkeeper saved two penalties given away by the centre-back in Everton’s 1-1 draw at Manchester City.

Jagielka tripped David Silva in the first half at the Etihad Stadium, but Kevin De Bruyne was unable to beat Stekelenburg from 12 yards.

Everton took the lead through a Romelu Lukaku goal on the counterattack and perhaps thought they were on their way to an impressive victory when the Dutch goalkeeper repelled Sergio Aguero’s spot-kick, the substitute having been clumsily felled by the unfortunate Jagielka.

Nolito then equalised to earn a point for City, but Everton’s England international centre-back can at least feel relieved his errors did not cost Ronald Koeman’s team directly, with former Ajax shot-stopper Stekelenburg the man he must thank.

“When you go 1-0 up you hope you can get the three points but I think you have to be thankful for a point,” Stekelenburg was quoted as saying by the BBC.

“It’s not only guesswork for the penalties, you do the analysis as well. Will Phil Jagielka buy me dinner after that? I will ask him!” 

The draw leaves Everton sixth in the table, with a home game against Burnley coming up next weekend.
