Injured Mirallas to miss season end

FOOTBALL: Champions League-chasing Everton will be without forward Kevin Mirallas for their final three matches of the season due to a groin injury. The Belgium international limped off during Sunday’s 2-0 victory over Manchester United and will now miss games against Southampton, Manchester City and Hull. Mirallas is expected to be out for six weeks, but return to fitness in time for this summer’s World Cup in Brazil.
