Everton recorded its first win of the Ronald Koeman era in a 2-1 victory against West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns.
Everton went behind early after a missed assignment on a corner kick led to a goal from West Brom defender Gareth McAuley at the back post in just the ninth minute. But Kevin Mirallas pulled the Toffees even in stoppage time of the first half with a perfect touch to the far corner of the net out of Ben Foster's reach. Then, Gareth Barry made a rare cameo appearance on the score sheet with what ended up being the match-winner in the 60th minute after heading in a mishit shot from Mason Holgate off a set-piece to earn the three points.

Roberto Martinez has confirmed that Everton duo Kevin Mirallas and Mo Besic will not be available for Wednesday nights' Capital One Cup semi-final versus Man City because of injury.

Besic lasted barely ten minutes of Sundays’ home game against Swansea after a hamstring problem forced the midfielder off. Although the loss comes as a bitter blow, the good news is that the suspected strain occurred in the left leg and not the right which hampered his progress during the early months of this season. Mirallas will also be checked after injuring a tendon around the knee: "I don't expect them to be fit for Wednesday and I expect a bit of a period where they will be unavailable. It is a real shame because both players gave us a really refreshing look and reached good levels at this stage of the season." Phil Jagielka will return to the squad having been rested in game week twenty-three.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez reiterated that the club is not looking to sell winger Kevin Mirallas despite numerous reports saying the Belgian is set to leave the club.

When asked whether Everton could be tempted into making a move, Martinez replied, "No, not at all. Kevin signed a new contract in the summer. He had a really strong pre-season. We allow football to make decisions. We've got really good attacking options and Kevin was unfortunate...I expect Kevin to have a major influence in the second half of the season." Mirallas has been linked with a move to Monaco, AC Milan and Marseille in recent weeks and is reportedly considering a move so he can gain more playing time before this summer's European championships.

Everton had plenty of chances to get on the board but could not find the end product as they would settle for a 0-0 draw with Swansea City.

Both sides had their chances but the Toffees had more of them, and more of the quality variety. Romelu Lukaku, Ross Barkley and Steven Naismith all looked to be on the end of goals but some last second tackling and clearances kept them from finding paydirt. The defense did well to keep the Swans out as well and a draw was likely the fair result. Kevin Mirallas, subbed in for the final couple of minutes, earned a straight red for a stamp on Modou Barrow. Disappointing for managers who have investment in Everton's attack but they look capable of bouncing back next week.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez is still reeling from the ‘disastrous’ (his words) loss of left-back Leighton Baines to a long-term injury. And now is sweating on the fitness of winger Kevin Mirallas ahead of their trip to Southampton…

Roberto Martinez has more headaches ahead of Everton’s trip to Southampton at the weekend. Leighton Baines is likely to be out for months rather than weeks, following an injury to the ankle which required surgery at the end of last season. Youngster Brenden Galloway replaced Baines v Watford, with Bryan Oviedo a more experienced option. Winger Kevin Mirallas also picked up a knock in the opening day draw with Watford and is rated as doubtful to make it for Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off at St Marys. Summer (re)signing Gerard Deufoleu stands by to be drafted in to make his second Everton debut, despite not being 100% match fit. Everton now commence a punishing run of fixtures that includes Man City, Chelsea and trips to Tottenham and Swansea. Only the bravest FL managers will be trusting Everton defenders in the next month…

After a lot of speculation about his future, Kevin Mirallas has signed a contract extension with Everton that will keep him at the club for the next three years.

Mirallas is very talented. Mirallas also seems to be perpetually injured. Last season, things between he and Roberto Martinez appeared to reach a breaking point with Mirallas insisting on taking a critical penalty over usual penalty-taker Leighton Baines and then missing it badly. The incident cost Everton points and many suspected it would cost Mirallas his job. Apparently fences have been mended after rumors of a move to Spurs and Mirallas is now going to be a Toffee for the next three seasons. Oh, he's still uncertain to start in Week 1 against Watford because no contract extension can change the fact that he's hurt a lot.

Roberto Martinez has confirmed that Kevin Mirallas and John Stones will be assessed after the pair were substituted against Villareal due to ankle injuries.

However the Toffees boss didn’t seem overly concerned post-match "I don’t expect it to be anything too serious" suggesting there withdrawal was more of a precaution. Romelu Lukaku was missing from Sundays’ testimonial [for Duncan Ferguson] but the striker was rested after feeling discomfort in his hamstring midweek while Gerard Deulofeu was another absentee despite early optimism that the Spanish winger would be fine following his recent thigh problem. Everton are already struggling with Tony Hibbert, Aidan McGeady, Mo Besic, Steven Pienaar and Darron Gibson out of the opener although they have been boosted by the return to fitness of Leighton Baines and Bryan Oviedo.

Roberto Martinez has lined up Seville winger Diego Capel as a replacement for the restless Kevin Mirallas…

The relationship between Kevin Mirallas and Roberto Martinez has been strained ever since last season’s ‘penalty-gate’. After Mirallas insisted on taking, then missing a penalty he won v West Brom last season, Mirallas failed to appear for the second half. Martinez first claimed the change was due to injury, later saying it was tactical. It emerged that Mirallas wanted to score to display a t-shirt tribute to the late Junior Malanda. Either way, it put a wedge between the two fueling speculation that Mirallas could be on his way. The arrival of winger Gerard Deufoleu, interest in Tottenham’s Aaron Lennon (possibly as part of a swap deal) has done nothing to quell the rumors. And now Martinez’s interest in Seville’s Spanish international wide man Diego Capel suggests the writing is on the wall. Seville are looking for around £2m.

Ongoing speculation about the futures of James McCarthy, Kevin Mirallas and now John Stones threatens to sabotage Everton’s season before it starts…

Summer transfer speculation is nothing new for Everton. Last year it was Seamus Coleman and Ross Barkley, the year before Marouanne Fellaini and Leighton Baines. This summer however, Martinez has boldly – and repeatedly – stated that Everton are no longer a ‘selling’ club. But it seems nobody is listening. James McCarthy has been heavily linked with Man City and Tottenham. Kevin Mirallas is the subject of a £6m bid from West Ham. And Chelsea are circling above John Stones, ready, willing and able to pay whatever it takes. The signing of Gerard Deufoleu will negate the loss of Mirallas and the addition of Tom Cleverley softens the blow if McCarthy leaves. But it is a worrying lack of progress following last season’s bottom half finish. And should crown Jewel John Stones succumb to Jose’s charms, Martinez could be left with just one senior center-back. And a back full of money has never made a tackle, won a header or kept a clean sheet…

Mauricio Pochettino is looking to revamp Spurs as an attacking force. The club are believed to be preparing a double swoop with Chelsea winger Victor Moses and Everton speedster Kevin Mirallas high on his shopping list this summer.

Tottenham tailed off during the latter part of the 2014/15 season, a dip in form which ultimately cost the Lilywhites a shot at Champions League qualification. Only Harry Kane was able to deliver consistently while the form of Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela and Nacer Chadli was patchy at best. With Aaron Lennon expected to depart over the coming weeks Pochettino has focussed his attention on Victor Moses who impressed on-loan at Stoke before injury curtailed his season and Kevin Mirallas. The Belgian only started 8 BPL games in 2015 and failed to complete 90 minutes in any of those.

Everton look set to lose winger Kevin Mirallas with Tottenham standing by to swoop…

Mirallas is in the last year of his contract at Everton and reportedly keen on a move to London, which could prompt Tottenham to reignite their pursuit of the Belgian. A swap deal involving Aaron Lennon almost went through in January – Lennon spent a successful second half of the season at Goodison and both parties seem keen to make the move permanent – but Tottenham are expected to make a straight cash offer for Mirallas. With a figure of around £7 million mooted. The mercurial Mirallas scored seven goals from just 18 starts last term and is highly thought of at Everton, but the relationship between him and manager Roberto Martinez soured after the ‘penalty gate’ incident v West Brom in January. The arrival of £4.3 million winger Gerard Deufoleu from Barcelona this week and an enquiry about the availability of Man United’s Adnan Januzaj on loan will not have improved relations between the two.

Everton kept up their solid home form with another win and clean sheet, their third straight in each department, today disposing of Burnley, 1-0.

It looked like a potential disaster for the Toffees in this one just 10 minutes in, when Aaron Lennon was brought down by David Jones and a penalty was awarded, though it appeared Lennon wasn't quite all the way in the area. For unknown reasons, Ross Barkley took the spot kick and it was saved rather easily by Tom Heaton, causing the Goodison Park crowd to understandably grown. Mirallas would help put that event past them though on the half hour mark. He collected a McCarthy cross that touched Arouna Kone on the way over and slotted home at the far post, though he scuffed his original kick. The Toffees couldn't seal the points with an additional goal but their ability to keep the Clarets out was aided by Ashley Barnes' sending off just before the break, giving Everton the man advantage for the final 45.

Kevin Mirallas has been sidelined for the past three league games due to a dead leg picked up against Dynamo Kiev but is pushing for a return next weekend when the Toffees host Southampton.

Roberto Martinez expressed confidence earlier in the week that the Belgian would be back in action immediately after the international break but has since admitted that his availability for the match against the Saints is still in question. Unless there is extremely positive news heading into next weekend, it would be wise to avoid Mirallas for fear he may not start. However, his price in the Yahoo game has dropped drastically in recent weeks and is an absolute bargain once he gets his spot back. He is one to monitor for a barndoor move the next time his name makes Martinez's XI.

Everton winger Kevin Mirallas will face a race against time to make the squad for this weekends’ game against Queens Park Rangers after Roberto Martinez decided not to risk the Belgium international in Thursdays’ Europa League game.

Mirallas remained at Finch Farm to continue treatment on the injury he picked up during the first leg against Kiev in an attempt to make the game at Loftus Road in GW30. However there was better news as Aiden McGeady has recovered from a knee injury [bruised patella] to travel with the Toffees – John Stones was also part of the 21 man squad after returning to the bench last weekend following a spell out due to illness. Everton hold a slender [2-1] lead going into the game and avoiding would see them progress to the quarter-final stages of the competition.

Due to recent performance, Kevin Mirallas has seen his price dip to a season low but with Everton beginning to play better, it may represent a good time to buy him on the cheap.

The penalty debacle between Mirallas and Leighton Baines and the former's subsequent miss illuminated just how poorly things were going for the Toffees, but it may provide the catalyst for a turnaround to their season. The addition of Aaron Lennon on the opposite flank and an end to a scoring drought last week by Romelu Lukaku has investment in the Toffee attack trending upward and Mirallas is going for just a tick over 8m in the Yahoo game right now. If you believe Everton will score at home in this weekend's derby, an 8m gamble on Mirallas looks the best value. While he will never take a penalty again for his club, he is still grabbing his share of set piece work.
