Sylvain Distin could join Kevin Mirallas and Lacina Traore on the list of players ruled out for the remainder of the season after picking up a hamstring strain in the win over Manchester United on Sunday. The Frenchman is awaiting the results of tests performed at Finch Farm this week to find out if he'll miss the final three matches of the campaign.
Kevin Mirallas will miss Everton's last three games of the season with a groin injury, Everton have now confirmed. The 26 year-old appeared to be in some discomfort as he made his way around the pitch at the final whistle of Sunday's win over Manchester United and reports from Belgium that his League season is over have now been proved correct. Mirallas is expected to be out for a month but should make the World Cup Finals in Brazil.
Everton completed the double over Manchester United and moved back to within a point of Arsenal with a convincing 2-0 win. Leighton Baines slotted home a 28th-minute penalty after Phil Jones had handled Romelu Lukaku's shot and Kevin Mirallas then doubled the advantage, collecting Seamus Coleman's pass and smashing past David de Gea from the angle. The Blues suffocated any attempt by David Moyes's side to get back into the game and Tim Howard denied Wayne Rooney with a superb late save to preserve the clean sheet.
