The forward's comments to Belgian media provide some context to his reduced playing time in recent weeks which has seen him complete the full 90-minutes just once since.
The 27 year-old started the cup tie against West Ham last week but was withdrawn after 65 minutes and only played 15 minutes of Saturday's draw with Manchester City.
Mirallas was chopped down by a poor challenge from QPR's Jordan Mutch a month ago and had to be stretchered off the field. He missed the following game at Southampton but returned against Stoke City the week after, only to pick up a knock to the same ankle.
He was able to finish the game but was dropped back to the bench for the game at Newcastle two days later and was withdrawn after an hour at Hull. "I'm still not 100% fit," he told Telenet Sport.

Why can't we have a calm, professional, quietly sensible manager like Koeman?
I really like Mirallas.

Atsu has been a bad move.

Lord how I wish our skilled players were built like the seemingly indestructible Barry.
