Kevin Mirallas is hopeful that he has now put his injury problems behind him and is ready for the final push towards European qualification.

The Belgian international was a sensation when he first moved over to England and started gracing the right flank at Goodison Park.

Whilst Everton were well known for just how dangerous they could be down the left wing with Leighton Baines and Steven Pienaar, all of a sudden Everton also had a threat down the right with Seamus Coleman and Kevin Mirallas.

But then in November Mirallas suffered a hamstring injury which kept him sidelined, all for 45 minutes against Tottenham, until January.

‘It has been tough being out, Until now the longest I`d ever been out in my career was a month. It`s been tough and then obviously to have the setback, having come back the other game (Tottenham), was quite tough. Mirallas told evertonfc.com.

He continued: ‘With the backing of my family, the club and by working hard I hope it`s behind me now and that it`s a thing of the past. Hopefully I can continue to get some games under my belt.’

Mirallas returned to action last month and has been involved in five games for both club and country, but is yet to play a full 90 minutes.

Against Southampton he played 23 minutes, against Bolton he managed 17 minutes, against both West Brom and Aston Villa he played 65 minutes and this week he played a half for Belgium.

‘I hope to be back at 100 per cent as quickly as possible,’ he continued. ‘It`s all about getting some games under my belt now and playing regularly. Hopefully that form will come back as quickly as possible.
