Everton midfielder, Andre Gomes suffers horrific ankle injury against Tottenham.

SHARE:


Everton striker Cenk Tosun says he would rather not have scored the 97th-minute equaliser against Tottenham if it meant Andre Gomes had not suffered his horrific ankle injury.

Gomes suffered a fractured dislocation to his right ankle and will have surgery on Monday.

A distressed Son Heung-min of Spurs was sent off in the 79th minute for his tackle on the Portuguese midfielder.

Tosun said Everton players "nearly cried" in the dressing room after.

"You win, you draw, you lose but all that doesn't matter when something like this happens," Tosun wrote on Instagram.

"I wish I didn't score, I wish we lost 0-5 and this didn't happen. I know you will come back stronger bro and we will be there for you."


There was a six-minute stoppage as medics attended to Gomes.

The incident initially looked innocuous, but the mood immediately changed among the players and crowd as the full extent of the injury became apparent.

The match eventually finished 1-1 after Tosun's header cancelled out Dele Alli's earlier effort.

"Everybody is sad inside. Some players, they nearly cried," said substitute Tosun, who had been on the pitch 10 minutes when the incident happened.

"He was in shock; his eyes were open so big. He was like crying, shouting and screaming.

"I just tried to hold him and speak to him. I tried to tell him to stay calm. We couldn't understand him."


'More than a football game'
Everton manager Marco Silva backed Gomes, 26, to return stronger, and also praised his players for their response.

"This is a bad moment for us and our team - this was more than a football game," he said. "We will give all support to Andre and his family. As a group we have to stay together and show the spirit we showed following the incident.

"Our players now, they are sad, a tough moment for us in our dressing room and for Andre, but the spirit we showed after that moment on the pitch I think is a good answer for you.

"He is seriously injured but I am 100% sure Andre will become stronger as a football player and as a man, because he is a fantastic lad, a fantastic professional."

Everton midfielder Fabian Delph appeared to still be affected in a post-match TV interview when asked about his team-mate.

"He's one our brothers, someone we care about deeply," said the former Manchester City player. "It's hard to put into words. The sooner we can get in touch the better. That was difficult to see."
