Premier League: Everton boss Roberto Martinez fears Kevin Mirallas faces a long lay-off

Everton forward Kevin Mirallas could face a lengthy spell on the sidelines, according to manager Roberto Martinez.

The Belgium international was substituted and had to leave the field on a stretcher after pulling up with what appeared to be a hamstring injury during the 1-1 Merseyside derby at Anfield on Saturday.

And Martinez admitted he is concerned by Mirallas’ injury which appears to be a serious one.

"We had a few scans and we are going to carry on today,” Martinez told evertontv. “It isn't a straightforward diagnosis but obviously the signs are not great.

"We are going to make sure we are clear with the problem. It's not normal when Kevin Mirallas feels something like that and has to come off in the game. We know then that it is something serious.

"He has always been a very fit boy who is always ahead of schedule and we hope this time it is going to be exactly the same."

Everton are also still to assess whether Seamus Coleman, Sylvain Distin and Steven Pienaar will be fit to travel for Thursday's Europa League group game at FK Krasnodar.
