Andre Gomes suffers sickening leg break after Son Heung-min's tackle

Everton FC v Tottenham Hotspur - Premier League

The first-half of Everton vs Spurs was pretty horrible.

There was one shot on target and it was surely the worst 45 minutes of Premier League football we’ve seen all season.

But it came alive after half-time.

Dele Alli put the away side ahead with a well-taken goal before he was involved in a VAR incident after handling the ball inside his own penalty area.

After a lengthy VAR check, it was decided that it was no penalty.

Then, minutes later, we saw some horrific scenes.

Son Heung-min fouled Andre Gomes and the midfielder collided with Serge Aurier on the floor.

It resulted in what appeared to be a sickening leg break.

Sky Sports refused to show replays and awful images have since emerged of Gomes' leg. For obvious reasons, we won't show you them.

Son was, rather harshly sent off, as he broke down in tears. He was initially given a yellow card by referee Martin Atkinson but, after seeing Gomes' injury, it was upgraded to a red card.

It was a foul but the injury was due to the way he fell.

Son broke down in tears after seeing Gomes' leg but didn't complain about his dismissal. In truth, he was probably in no state to continue anyway.


With the VAR check and Gomes' injury, there was an additional 12 minutes added on.

And in the 97th-minute, the home side scored an equaliser for their injured midfielder.

Substitute Cenk Tosun headed home from Lucas Digne's cross as the match finished in a draw.

But football took a backseat after Gomes' injury. We just pray the Portuguese makes a full recovery.
