Andre Gomes injury: Everton pals unlikely to visit him in hospital as he will be on ‘strong dose of painkillers’ – The Sun

ANDRE GOMES' distraught Everton team-mates are unlikely to visit him in hospital because he will be on such a "strong dose of painkillers".

The medication Gomes will receive while being in for surgery will almost certainly mean he is not ready to see visitors, report The Athletic.

Toffees midfielder Gomes, 26, suffered a dislocated and broken right ankle after a coming together with Spurs' Son Heung-min last night.

The 78th-minute incident saw Son reduced to tears, team-mate Serge Aurier visibly distressed and Cenk Tosun trying to comfort his Goodison pal after hearing his screams.

Gomes was rushed to Aintree hospital and he will have the operation to put his foot back in place today.

But he will reportedly do so without the presence of his team-mates.

The Athletic say it is "unlikely" any Everton stars will visit Gomes due to the strength of painkillers he will need.

Instead, they have sent messages on social media wishing him a quick recovery.

Fabian Delph said: "It is difficult to put into words how we feel.

"Our thoughts are with Andre. He is one of our brothers. We will give him all our support."

England keeper Jordan Pickford said: "Thinking of you brother. We're all here for you.

"Hope to see you back on the pitch as soon as possible."

Lucas Digne posted on Twitter: "My brother everybody is with you. I know you are the beast and you come back stronger."

Son is said to have switched off his phone and gone straight home to his parents once the Spurs plane landed back at Stansted last night.

Mauricio Pochettino revealed that Everton skipper Seamus Coleman, who suffered a similar injury in March 2017, consoled Son in their Goodison dressing room.

The traumatised South Korean was initially going to be awarded a yellow for his challenge before referee Martin Atkinson upgraded it to a red after seeing the damage caused by his challenge.

Spurs are set to appeal Son's red card with Pochettino slamming the "unbelievable" sending off.

Dele Alli declared after the game that Son was struggling to lift his head up, but Poch has since said that the ex-Hamburg winger is now feeling better.
