Spurs Consider Appeal over Son's Red Card in Gomes Incident

EPL players in tears over horrific leg injury to Andre Gomes in Everton's 1-1 draw with Tottenham

Horror injury to Andre Gomes overshadows Spurs draw at Everton

Everton released a statement on Sunday night, saying: 'We can confirm Andre Gomes will undergo surgery ton Monday after sustaining an ankle injury in today's game with Tottenham Hotspur.

The Turkey global, who had only just come on as a substitute, raced over to the stricken Gomes, whose right foot had got caught in the turf after he had been fouled by Tottenham forward Son Heung-min.

Son, who was in floods of tears, was originally shown a yellow card for the tackle, but it was later upgraded to a red by referee Martin Atkinson.

The Portuguese was taken straight to hospital where he has been diagnosed with a fracture dislocation to his right ankle.

Reacting to the development, Ronaldo, a fellow country teammate with Gomes, in a post on his official Instagram page, wished the 26-year-old a speedy recovering. Everton strongly condemns any form of racism.

The match eventually finished 1-1 after Cenk Tosun's header in the 97th minute cancelled out Dele Alli's earlier effort. "The captain got here to the dressing room to console Son".

"I want to be remembered mainly by my example as a person, I want to be remembered as a man of God", he said in an interview, according to Evangelical Focus.

"We feel very sorry, it was a bad situation, bad luck how he landed", he said.

Aurier, who would have had a full view of the extent of the injury, was seen appearing to pray while other players could barely bring themselves to view what had happened.

Everton head coach Marco Silva (left) said: 'It is really tough for us to talk about what has happened on the pitch. "To see the foot facing the wrong way, for someone who has not seen it before, it's the scariest thing you can see, but as orthopaedic surgeons we see them all the time and our job is to put people back together again".

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino was furious with Heung-min Son's dismissal in their draw with Everton. We feel devastated, it was so, so hard.

'In the second half, so many moments to stop the game. We are going to talk about the VAR, the VAR need to check if it was a bad tackle and not a bad injury.

"Sonny was devastated. In that moment it was very confused, hard to keep calm, you watch the reaction on TV - it was never the intention and never a tackle to do what happened after", he said.
