Mirallas has not travelled with the rest of Everton’s squad for tomorrow night’s UEFA Europa League tie with Dynamo Kiev, and is unlikely to return to action until at least the 4th April when the Toffees welcome Southampton to Goodison Park.
Everton had hoped he would be fit for the clash tomorrow after picking up a dead leg in the first leg last week, but boss Roberto Martinez confirmed that was not the case:
“Mirallas could not be risked,” he said. “It’s a bigger problem than we thought and it might impact on him for the internationals with Belgium. He got a dead leg in the first leg and it has not cleared up as we would have liked. We need to be careful because he is a sprinter. It is a big risk so we need to be careful.”
Everton lead 2-1 on aggregate going into the tie.
