Everton midfielder James McCarthy appears to have suffered a serious leg break during Saturday afternoon’s clash with West Bromwich Albion. The Ireland international was stretchered off the pitch and it is understood he was rushed straight to hospital following a tangle with Baggies striker Salomon Rondon. Rondon accidentally struck McCarthy’s leg as the Everton man attempted to make a tackle, and the Venezuelan seemed traumatised by the incident.
While medical staff rushed on to treat the Toffees midfielder, Rondon was in tears and had to be consoled by West Brom staff. Seamus Coleman , who suffered a similar injury, was pictured leaving his seat at Goodison Park to console his team-mate.
