Andre Gomes’ season looks over after the Portugal midfielder suffered an awful leg injury in Everton’s Sunday encounter with Tottenham at Goodison Park.
Son Heung-min was sent off after a challenge on the ex-Barcelona midfielder, with the Spurs forward leaving the field in tears after being shown the red card by referee Martin Atkinson.
Gomes was taken off on a stretcher by medical staff after a number of minutes treatment.
Gomes, a £22million summer signing after a successful loan spell on Merseyside last term, was immediately taken out of the ground and into an ambulance.
Son was initially booked by the referee, for the challenge, which was little more than an innocuous trip on Gomes.
But the challenge ensured that Gomes was propelled forward into Serge Aurier, while the Portuguese star’s right leg also got caught in the turf.
As such, Atkinson elected to upgrade Son’s yellow card to a red, with the South Korean distraught at what had occurred.
