Everton fans have been reaching out to Portuguese midfielder Andre Gomes after a horrific injury during his side’s 1-1 draw against Tottenham on Sunday.
Should Cenk Tosun be playing more?
The 26-year-old had possession for the home side and was challenged from behind by Spurs’ star Son Heung-Min near the halfway line. The tackle appeared to be an innocent one to prevent a counter-attack. However, Gomes’ ankle dug into the Goodison Park turf as he went to the ground which caused the serious injury.
