Son Heung-min was devastated after Andre Gomes’ horror injury at Goodison Park.

Tottenham star Son Heung-min was completely heartbroken in the dressing room after accidentally breaking Andre Gomes’ foot, claims Dele Alli.

Son tackled Gomes from behind on the left flank and the Everton star then made contact with Spurs defender Serge Aurier as he landed on the pitch.

Fans and players started to panic as they then saw that the Portugal international’s ankle was twisted 90 degrees to the right from its normal position and his team-mates rushed to his side to console him.

Son held his head in disbelief and broke down in tears while Aurier started praying for his fellow footballer who was stretchered off of the pitch amid a standing ovation from the crowd at Goodison Park.

Alli revealed that the South Korea international’s mood wasn’t any different in the dressing room after the final whistle.

The Tottenham midfielder claims that his team-mate was still crying when he went in to comfort his team-mate.

However, the England international insists the incident wasn’t Son’s fault and wished Gomes a speedy recovery.

All said: “I didn’t want to look too much at what happened [to Gomes].

“All I can do is send him my best wishes and wish him a quick recovery,.

“I just went into the changing room now and [Son] is devastated, he’s in tears but it’s not his fault.

“Like I’ve said so many times before, Sonny’s one of the nicest people you could ever meet and he’d never mean to do something like that.

“If you see his reaction in there, he can’t even lift his head up he’s crying that much in there.

“But obviously it’s not something you want to see happen to anyone so just have to send our best to him [Gomes].”

Alli opened the scoring for Tottenham after 63 minutes but Cenk Tosun equalised for Everton during stoppage time.
