Mirallas picks up another injury
Everton currently is the club in the Premier League that has conceded most goals having received a total of 14 goals so far, this is an evident sign of the lack of any solid defensive figures but now the squad of Roberto Martinez will be without the services of Kevin Mirallas.
Kevin Mirallas is a Belgium player who has played in all 6 Premier League matches of the season but picked up a hamstring injury when playing against Liverpool.
It still remains unsure as to exactly how long the Belgium attacker is going to be out injured unable to play but Roberto Martinez predicts that Mirallas could be out for a fairly long period of time.
"It's not a straightforward diagnosis but the signs are not great. Kevin is an ultra-fit boy and when he has to come off in that sort of game you know that something is majorly wrong. Once we've got a clear idea on what the injury is, we've got to put a good plan is place." Martinez said as he was explaining the condition of Kevin Mirallas.
Mirallas had to leave the pitch on a stretcher at the 31st minute during Everton’s Premier League encounter against Liverpool as he sustained the hamstring injury and was replaced by Aiden McGeady.
Steven Pienaar, Seamus Coleman and Ross Barkley are the other players in the squad of Roberto Martinez that are one the injury list of Everton with none of them expected to be ready and fit enough to play in the Europa League match against Krasnodar which will be played on October 2nd.
"I think Krasnodar is going to be a really difficult experience. All we want now is to get all the injured players back. We planned to have a squad to cope with all these games but obviously when you get someone like Steven Pienaar, someone like Seamus Coleman, someone like Ross Barkley injured, that hurts. Martinez added on as he spoke about his other injured players.
Roberto Martinez is well aware of the difference that it is going to be difficult facing off with Krasnodar considering all of his injured players but he remains optimistic about what lies ahead.
