Andre Gomes injury: Jamie Carragher says Son Heung-min should not have been sent off | Football | Sport
Gomes appeared to suffer a serious ankle injury following a collision with Son at Goodison Park.
Referee Martin Atkinson initially gave Son a yellow card but then, after seeing the injury, changed his mind and gave a red.
The Tottenham star was in floods of tears after seeing what happened and was accompanied down the tunnel by members of the Spurs backroom staff.
Former Liverpool defender Carragher was co-commentating on the match for Sky Sports.
He attempted to explain to viewers what had happened as the replay was too graphic to be shown.
And he claimed South Korea star Son was unfortunate to be given a red card.
“A very unfortunate incident,” Carragher said.
“You won’t want to see the replays because it’s not nice, not good for Andre Gomes.
“Son, he just gets away from him. You can see here, it’s not a red card, he’s just trying to stop him in his tracks.
“It’s just there, his foot actually gets stuck underneath him. We don’t want to show that.
“Aurier comes in behind but it wasn’t either player really who made the challenge that actually caused the really serious injury.
“Obviously the challenge from Son forced him to ground and then he almost gets his foot caught underneath him as Aurier comes in.
“You can see the reaction of the supporters there.”
The game ended 1-1 following a late equaliser from Cenk Tosun.
Dele Alli had given Tottenham the lead but Tosun, who had come on as a second-half substitute, headed the leveller inside the 12 minutes of stoppage time at the end of the match.
