Phil Jagielka: Focus on this weekend's game

Phil Jagielka: Focus on this weekend's game

The pair's clash in December saw Marouane Fellaini headbutt Ryan Shawcross in the face after what the Toffees believed was considerable provocation throughout the match.

The incident was missed by the match officials but Fellaini was later served with a three-match ban after video evidence was reviewed.

Fellaini missed much of the busy festive period and the midfielder, along with team-mate Steven Pienaar, is also suspended for the Potters' visit on Saturday.

However, Jagielka stressed the players who are available will be focused on building on their most recent league outing, when they beat last season's champions Manchester City.

"Obviously we didn't enjoy the way it was when we played at Stoke," said the centre-back.

"I don't think we got any help from the officials at all. You can't condone what Felli did but in the build-up he was getting wrestled all the time.

"We won't look back at the game though because now we need to concentrate on being positive and getting the right results."

With David Moyes' side sixth in the table, six points off the top four, Jagielka believes they need to approach the final nine matches with a slightly different attitude.

"We need to win games now," he told the Liverpool Echo.

"If we were to draw I'm not saying it would be the end of the season but we have to go out ultra-positive and really take it to teams and see how we go."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
