The Belgian international was making his first start since early December having launched his comeback from a hamstring injury in Monday's goalless draw at Southampton. However, the 25-year-old lasted just 18 minutes before making way for Frenchman Magaye Gueye. Everton went on to win the game thanks to a late strike from substitute John Heitinga and afterwards Moyes said:
"It was a disappointment [when Kevin went off] but I’m not sure it’s as bad as we first thought and hopefully he might not be too bad."
Prior to the game at St Mary's, Mirallas had played just once since first sustaining the problem during a 2-1 home win over Sunderland on 10 November. Related stories From around the web Related Tags
