This is a collection of the best Kevin Mirallas penalty jokes following his miss against West Brom after the Everton winger appeared to prevent team-mate Leighton Baines from taking the kick.
Despite further protests from Steven Naismith and Romelu Lukaku, the Belgian international insisted on taking the 44th minute penalty instead of the team’s spot kick specialist but only succeeded in dragging his shot wide of the post.
Mirallas was substituted at half-time, shortly after the incident, although manager Roberto Martínez claims this was due to a hamstring injury and not the administration of a swift punishment.
The game finished 0-0 and Everton were left to rue the missed opportunity while the player was accused of selfishness and a lack of team spirit.

It's alright Mirallas, didn't want those fantasy league points Baines would have got for bagging that penalty, anyway!

Maybe Sylvester Stallone will explain that nonsensical decision to let Mirallas take that during his half-time Goodison video address.

If I am Baines I'm fighting Mirallas at half time.

I think Mirallas has probably spent the entire HT either apologising to or ignoring Baines #SpotKickRebel

Mirallas' bird is getting kicked out of bed to make way for his ego.
