Kevin Mirallas put in an inspired performance in attack for Everton during their 4-2 win over Leicester on Sunday – and fans on Twitter were thrilled.
The 29-year-old attacker made a slow start to the season but has shown vast improvement since the start of the year, and gave yet another impressive display against Leicester.
Mirallas made a lightning quick start to the game to assist Tom Davies’ opening goal less than a minute after kick-off.
The Belgium international bagged a second assist from a corner, whipping a delightful ball into the Leicester penalty area, which was met by the head of an unmarked Phil Jagielka.
But despite not registering on the scoresheet himself, Mirallas continued to unsettle the Leicester back-line throughout the remainder of the game, much to the delight of the Everton fans.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
So nice to see Mirallas delivering crosses that players can actually get on the end of. Well in Rom. #EFC

Mirallas has been in fine form of late, despite drawing blanks against both Liverpool and Manchester United earlier this month.
He has contributed four goals and six assists from 31 appearances in all competitions for Everton this season, of which five assists have come since January.
His resurgence into a key player has come at a crucial time for Everton, with the club chasing a top six finish in the Premier League this season.
