Phil Jagielka is the hot topic in many of Tuesday's national newspapers.

The Blues defender put in another excellent performance in Sunday's Merseyside derby and manager David Moyes has backed him to become the heart of England's own backline.

The Daily Express, Daily Star and Daily Mirror all feature quotes from the Everton boss on the Blues' stand-in and next permanent captain.

Meanwhile, in the Liverpool Echo, Sylvain Distin insists there is no point criticising derby referee Michael Oliver for wrongly ruling out his potentially match-winning goal.

There's also a mention for former Academy midfielder Adam Forshaw, scorer of Brentford's winning penalty in the League One play-off semi-final against Swindon.

Goodison hero Ian Snodin uses his weekly Echo page to enthuse about Jagielka, hailing the former Sheffield United man as the best defender on current form in the Premier League.

Snodin also gives his thoughts on Distin's disallowed goal at Anfield and urges Steven Naismith to be patient for his opportunity to impress.
