Everton's Gomes stretchered off after horrific injury

Everton midfielder Andre Gomes was forced to leave Sunday’s match against Tottenham due to a serious injury.

The 26-year-old was stretchered off the pitch after appearing to suffer a horrific ankle injury as a result of a late challenge in the 79th minute from Tottenham forward Heung-min Son, who was subsequently shown a red card.

Replays appeared to show Gomes land awkwardly on the turf following Son’s tackle from behind.

Gomes was led straight to an ambulance at Goodison Park to be taken to a hospital, according to Pat Nevin of BBC Sport.

Everton teammates appeared to quickly realize the severity of the injury and urged members of the medical staff to attend to the Portugal international.

Son was visibly distraught and appeared to be close to tears moments after the tackle. He had to be consoled as he walked down the tunnel after being sent off.

Spurs defender Serge Aurier, who was also involved in the challenge, was visibly upset, too, and was substituted for shortly after.
