Mirallas: Everton performances show I made the right choice

The new Toffees forward has spoken of his delight at making his debut, and says that his decision not to move to North London has already been vindicated

Everton striker Kevin Mirallas says his new side's performances in their first two games of the season show he made the right choice in snubbing a move to Arsenal.

The Toffees have won both of their league fixtures, with Marouane Fellaini putting in one of the most impressive performances of his career to beat Manchester United 1-0 at Goodison Park on the opening day.

He also spoke of his delight at making his debut for the Toffees during their 3-1 victory over Aston Villa - and said his new teammates were constantly helping him out on the pitch.

“It’s great to come into a side that is in form,” Mirallas told the Liverpool Echo. “The team is playing very good football at the moment, and that reinforces the decision that I made to come here.

He added, “I knew I was coming to a great club, and the fact that we are playing so well at the moment is great."

The Belgian international had a goal disallowed in his first game against Villa, but says he will not dwell on it - setting his sights firmly on winning a starting birth in David Moyes team.

“I don’t know whether it was offside or not,” he said. “But it certainly would have been a fantastic debut if that would have counted! Nevertheless, I’ll just try and keep going and try to score on Wednesday now.

“The main thing is getting into the right places.

“Time out there on the field, getting into the rhythm of the game and getting used to the pace of the game, they will all help. That is the main thing. Minutes on the field are important.”
