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.
It is a blow to Everton's chances of beating Arsenal to fourth spot in the Premier League and the final Champions League qualification berth.
Fourth-place Arsenal is one point ahead of Everton.
