Everton attacker Mirallas confident he's met 'man up' challenge

Everton winger Kevin Mirallas feels he's responded to manager David Moyes' call for him to 'toughen up'.

The Belgian's durability was called into question this week following a series of premature withdrawals with seemingly minor knocks.

Mirallas told evertontv: "It is the manager who decides how long you stay out on the field but he is leaving me out there more and more for longer in each game and I think he can tell I am feeling fitter and lasting more into games now.

"I am quite pleased with my own form. I think I am playing quite well. I had a decent game - I would have liked to have scored but you can't score every game and Tuesday is another opportunity."
