Everton 1 – Tottenham 1
Everton and Tottenham drew 1-1 at Goodison Park on Sunday in the Premier League.
Dele Alli fired Tottenham ahead in the 63rd minute.
Everton levelled in injury time through Turkish striker Cenk Tosun.
Cenk Tosun wishes he didn’t score vs Tottenham
However, the big story of the match was a sickening injury to Everton midfielder Andre Gomes.
Gomes suffered a horrific leg-break following a tackle from Son Heung-min.
Tottenham’s South Korean forward was sent off as a result, following a review from VAR.
After the match, Cenk Tosun posted an eye-catching statement on social media.
Tosun claimed that he’d rather have not scored if that would have meant Andre Gomes’s injury never happened:
You win, you draw, you lose but all that doesn’t matter when something like this happens.
I wish I didn’t score, I wish we lost 0-5 and this didn’t happen.
I know you will come back stronger bro and we will be there for you.

Keşke gol atmasaydım, keşke maçı 0-5 kaybetseydik ama böyle bir olay yaşanmasaydı. Biliyorum daha güçlü döneceksin kardeşim ve bu yolda biz senin daima yanında olacağız 💙🙏 @aftgomes21
Sensitive Seamus Coleman praised by Spurs
After the match, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino praised Everton’s Seamus Coleman for what he did following the full-time whistle.
Coleman – who has recently recovered from his own shocking leg break – visited Son Heung-min in the Spurs dressing room to offer him comfort.
The players from Everton that were fantastic, I want to say thank you.
The captain, Coleman, came to the dressing room to console Sonny. Now it’s very calm.
I want to say thank you to the players and of course Coleman who came in on behalf of the Everton squad.
