Everton sent out a message on their official Twitter account on Thursday wishing out-of-favour winger Kevin Mirallas a happy 30th birthday, and Toffees fans want to see him back in the side.

The Belgium international, who is currently away with his country on international duty, has featured in just 21 minutes of the Merseyside outfit’s Premier League campaign this term, and 14 minutes in the Europa League group stages, with the Toffees currently struggling in both competitions.
Manager Ronald Koeman confirmed in August that the wide man was dropped from the squad because of his poor attitude, while the Belgian blasted the club for not letting him rejoin Olympiacos towards the end of the summer transfer window.
Everton supporters were quick to give their reaction to the birthday message via social media, and while some said that they ‘need him back in the side’, others feel that “he should play every week”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
He doesn't deserve to get a happy birthday

He should play every week. It's that simple.
