It was close – very close – but the voting in our Player of the Season poll produced another win for Phil Jagielka.
With 29% of the 5,685 votes, the Everton captain eventually edged ahead of John Stones (who garnered 28%) and James McCarthy (27%).
Jagielka was named as the club's official Players' Player of the Year and Player of the Year at the awards gala earlier this week, capping a season in which he started somewhat uncertainly but eventually saw him take a leadership role in pulling the Blues away from relegation danger and to mid-table safety.
