Everton boss Martinez: Mirallas okay

Everton boss Roberto Martinez has revealed Kevin Mirallas has escaped serious injury.

Mirallas was carried off on a stretcher amid fears he had damaged ankle ligaments when he was fouled in Everton's 3-1 win over QPR on Monday.

"We have great news as we were very worried after the game because it was an action where you feel the ankle is definitely damaged," said Martinez.

"The damage is the least it could be. It is an external ligament in his ankle and the way he is as a quick healer I don't expect him to be out for too long.

"I wouldn't rule him out for any of the fixtures over the Christmas period."
