Pochettino reveals what Everton captain did for Son after horror injury to Gomes
Seamus Coleman consoled Son Heung-min after tackle on Andre Gomes
Dele Alli and Cenk Tosun were the goal scorers in our 1-1 draw with Everton on Sunday.
Tottenham and Everton needed a win after some poor results, however, the game will be remembered for Andre Gomes’ horror injury in the second half.
The Portuguese midfielder was tripped by Son Heung-min before he hit Serge Aurier. The players asked for the medical team to rush onto the pitch soon.
The live pictures showed the extent of the damage and Son was left in tears as he was brandished a red card by Martin Atkinson.
Alli spoke after the game about Son crying in the dressing room while Mauricio Pochettino revealed that Everton captain Seamus Coleman met with the South Korean too (h/t Evening Standard):
“The players from Everton were fantastic.
“The captain came to the dressing room to console Son.
“I want to say thank you to the players and Coleman, who came in on behalf of the squad of Everton.”
Coleman went through a serious injury in 2017, and it was touching that the defender spoke with Son after the game. The South Korean didn’t intend to injure Gomes and hopefully, the Everton star returns to action quickly.
Tottenham can’t hold on for a win
The injury and the red card certainly changed the flow of the game. We were doing well to deal with Everton and could have gotten more than just a point had we not lost a man.
The home side piled on the pressure in the 12 minutes of stoppage time, and we finally cracked when Tosun headed in the equaliser.
