Everton defender Phil Jagielka was ruled out of the FA Cup final against Chelsea because of a knee injury. Jagielka was stretchered-off during his side's 2-1 defeat to Manchester City at Goodison Park.

Club physio Mick Rathbone said: "The scan has unfortunately confirmed what we already feared, and that is that Phil will be out for the rest of the season.

"He has ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament and will undergo surgery in around ten days time when the swelling has gone down. It's too early to estimate a return to action for the player."

Jagielka scored the winning penalty against Manchester United in the semi-finals which booked Everton's place in the FA Cup final at Wembley on 30 May.
