Everton midfielder Andre Gomes was on the receiving end of a nasty tackle from Tottenham Hotspur star Son Heung-Min at Goodison Park on the weekend. In a bid to win the ball against the Evertonian in the Premier League tie, Son unleashed a rather rash tackle on Gomes as he came running in from behind. Serge Aurier came charging on Gomes from the other direction and the whole situation resulted in a nasty collision. Gomes ended up fracturing his ankle in this freak accident and now faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
