Mirallas could be back in training in a month

Everton could welcome injured star Kevin Mirallas back to full training next month as his recovery from a torn hamstring continues according to plan.

The Belgian pulled up in pain during last month's Merseyside derby at Anfield and had to be stretchered away from the pitch, with the expectation that he would be out of action for a minimum of three months.

Roberto Martinez told reporters at his pre-match press conference ahead of the trip to Burnley that the club should have a good idea of when the forward is likely to return to action after the November international break.

The manager also suggested that while Bryan Oviedo and Arouna Kone aren't fit enough to be considered for the trip to Turf Moor, he expects them to be in contention for the home game against Swansea City next weekend.

Fingers crossed in Canada for Kevin to be on the mend. The return of our injured players made a huge difference and that will happen again when Mirallas gets back on the pitch.

We miss you Kevin. Please come back. Aiden is trying hard but he's not in your class.

Too true, Sam (#2), Aiden does try but, like you say, all too often he seems to do the hard bit okay, then either put a cross in to no-one, or gives the ball away too easily.

I can't wait to see Kevin back. I remember this time last year when he was getting grief on these pages and then he carried us for about two months on his own which shut many up. A great player and I just wish we had another one back from Sevilla in January to play on the opposite side.

Things are beginning to look healthier now with only Mirallas and Stones having medium term injuries and I've noticed some really good players unable to make the bench at Villa which was a first this season.

He's a very frustrating player IMO Conor. He can be brilliant when he's in the mood but too many games he's just wandering around and he's still a greedy bugger in front of goal.

Love him. His purchase coincided with a more positive attacking Everton side from Moyes. Also, aside from Seamus Coleman, he's our most direct player.

Colin, come on. Have a look at how we are when he is not playing. Yes, he can be frustrating and make wrong choices but most wide-men do and there are very few better in the Premier League than him; those that are cost 㿊 million and above.

He is electric, he has power, he has goals, he can assist, he can win a game on his own and he frightens defenders.

I think along with Coleman he is our most important player as unlike the rest with the current squad we have got, most can be replaced but not those two. I know Barkley is a unique talent but what we lost with Barkley we gained with more goals from Naismith even though obviously not in the same class and still a great loss.

He can drive me crackers but a true class player who makes a big difference.

Also, I'm pleased to hear Oviedo and Kone are knocking at the door. Great stuff.

Peter, I agree completely regarding the comparative work rates of Lukaku and Eto'o. I have a few comments though.

Firstly what makes you think his work-rate will not improve while learning from someone like Eto'o who clearly has a superb attitude? Was his work-rate poor last season?

Secondly, are you aware he is carrying a toe injury and has been all season as far as I can fathom?

Paul No.9 - are you on the right thread. Lukaku and Eto'o???

He is the one that helps us attack at speed.

There is going to be a day when Lukaku, Mirallas, Barkley and EtoÂ’o all start, click and absolutely batter somebody
