Everton's Phil Jagielka denies the Blues underestimated the opposition in their 4-1 home defeat by West Brom.England defender Jagielka told BBC Radio Merseyside: "We were not at the races and we paid the price. [LNB]"[West Brom] are a good team and we know they're a good team. With the performance we put out in stages, it may not have looked that way. [LNB]"We played OK for the first 10 minutes, then went missing for 20 minutes, then played well for another 10 minutes." [LNB]He added: "Half-time probably came at a bad time for us and in the second half and we came out looking like we were going to do something. But unfortunately, Mikel Arteta's sending-off killed us."[LNB] [LNB][LNB] Everton's fifth defeat of the season leaves them 16th and just two points above the relegation zone, with an away trip to champions Chelsea to come. [LNB]"It's not going to be an easy game away at Chelsea," said Jagielka. [LNB]"We'll go there as underdogs and hopefully put a decent performance in and come away with something."
