LIVERPOOL, England (AP) - Belgium winger Kevin Mirallas will miss Everton's final three matches of the season after tearing a groin muscle in Sunday's 2-0 win over Manchester United.

Everton says Tuesday that Mirallas will be out for three weeks, meaning he will be sidelined for the matches against Southampton, Manchester City and Hull.
