Everton manager Roberto Martinez has said that he expects Kevin Mirallas to have a "massive say" in the team's upcoming games.
The Belgium international has had a disrupted season due to various injury knocks, as well as a three-match suspension.
It is unclear whether Mirallas will be included in the starting lineup for this weekend's match against Arsenal at the Emirates, but Martinez aims to utilise the winger's quality.
"Kevin has been very unfortunate from the start of this season," Martinez told reporters. "He had little niggles and a couple of knocks, then the sending-off at Swansea was very harsh and kept him out of three games.
"In different moments in your career there are little spells where, for one reason or another, you cannot get any momentum. But I expect Kevin to discover that momentum and have a massive say in our performances ahead.
"He brings a unique goalscoring threat that you always need in your side and he's going to be very positive. The way he has been working during the international break was impressive and I expect a really good period from him once he gets fully match fit."
Mirallas signed a new three-year contract at Goodison Park in August.
