Roberto Martinez has admitted “signs are not great” over Kevin Mirallas’ latest injury.

Mirallas was stretchered off after just 30 minutes in last weekend’s Merseyside derby at Anfield after suffering a hamstring injury.

Martinez: “These type of injuries, sometimes you need over 48 hours for the inflammation to go down. We had a few scans and we are going to carry on today. It isn’t a straightforward diagnosis but obviously the signs are not great,”

“We are going to make sure we are clear with the problem. It’s not normal when Kevin Mirallas feels something like that and has to come off in the game. We know then that it is something serious.

“We need to make sure we get the full report before we know exactly what is wrong with Kevin. He has always been a very fit boy who is always ahead of schedule and we hope this time it is going to be exactly the same.”
