Everton manager Roberto Martinez has said that Kevin Mirallas should return to competitive action in November.
The 27-year-old Belgium international winger is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury he suffered in the Merseyside derby against Liverpool at Anfield in the Premier League in September.
Martinez said earlier this month that Mirallas will not require surgery and has now stated that he hopes to have the former Olympiacos star back in action after next month’s international break.
