The Belgium international is sidelined with a hamstring problem picked up in October after initially returning to action too early.

Moyes believes the 25-year-old's absence is taking its toll on his side as they push for a top-four Premier League finish this season.

He told the Daily Mirror: "We've missed Mirallas giving us another edge.

"It might be that we've not really flowed as I would have liked attacking wise.

"It's shown in one or two results. We've missed him too long. It's a problem.

"He's probably missed the bulk of it, 10 or 12 weeks. He was a big part of what we achieved in that early part of the season when we were at our best and played some good stuff."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
