Everton’s Andre Gomes to undergo surgery on fracture dislocation to right ankle

While the information given post-match was that it was shown for endangering the safety of a player, the decision can be appealed and the card could be rescinded.

While Son was inconsolable as he left the field, Pochettino singled out Coleman for praise as players from both sides comforted the South Korean forward on the field and in the Spurs dressing room after the game. "I want to send best wishes", Alli told Sky Sports when addressing Gomes' ugly injury.

The serious injury left Tottenham's Son Heung-min in tears as he walked off the pitch after receiving a red card for the incident. It's not his fault.

It was nearly forgotten that Alli, who scored his second goal in three league starts with a well-taken low drive in the 63rd minute, had seemingly put Spurs on the way to a much-needed win that might have lifted the clouds over Pochettino. "He landed in a bad situation".

Son was dismissed for the challenge, despite referee Martin Atkinson initially showing the South Korea global a yellow card.

"The red card, issued by the on-field referee, for Son was for endangering the safety of a player, which happened as a outcome of his initial challenge".

"Son clearly massively upset. It's being used to referee the game rather than something in the background to correct the absolute howler", Lineker said.

Everton confirmed this afternoon that the 26-year-old has undergone successful surgery and is expected to make a full recovery.

"I think Son is devastated because of the consequences. We send our best wishes to (Gomes)", Alli said. "What's important now is that he recovers well".

Everton manager Marco Silva agrees, saying that a high profile player like Son, would never play with such intentions.

"It is a bad moment for us as a group and as a team".

In Portugal there's already been chats with medical professionals, and one who knows more about football injuries than most is Henrique Jones.

Gomes' injury overshadowed what had been a poor match between two under-performing sides, in which VAR had been the major talking point prior to the incident. Dele Alli looked to have handled the ball in the Everton box, however, the hosts were denied a penalty after four minutes of VAR checks.

"I said after when the VAR was there for the Premier League, I said OK it will help all, but this type of situation you need help as the referee's decision was yellow card, VAR changed the decision".
