Coleman Facing Fortnight Out
But Moyes says Mirallas and Gibson are improving.
David Moyes says that Everton's injury list is 'improving' ahead of Wednesday’s home game against West Brom.
Kevin Mirallas was withdrawn after just 18 minutes of the Blues' FA Cup win at Bolton on Saturday, with the Belgian appearing to suffer a relapse of a recurring hamstring problem.
Midfielder Darron Gibson's thigh complaint resurfaced during the Boxing Day win over Wigan and caused the Republic of Ireland international to be substituted at half-time in that game.
However, both players could soon return to duty with Moyes saying: "Kevin's not as bad as we thought. We hope that he will be okay.
“Darron Gibson has had an injury in his thigh and he felt it again but it’s not as bad. Hopefully he is not too far away.”
Seamus Coleman limped off during the goalless draw at Southampton earlier this month and Moyes admitted the full-back might not be back until the Blues' FA Cup fifth round tie against Oldham in mid-February.
He said: “Seamus picked up an injury which was going to be about four weeks, so hopefully in another two weeks or so he will be back. We are a little bit short in full-back position, that’s for sure."
