They say that “don't judge the book by its cover” which completely goes with last night Tottenham Hotspurs vs Everton’s match in the Premier League. In fact, the match was an easy and calm one through the first half but the second was not the same as it completely changed all a sudden.

It was in around the 70th minute of the match when Everton midfielder Gomes, was seriously injured in the after Tottenham Hotspur's Son Heung-min’s tackle which left the South Korean player in tears to see what happened to his professional fellow.

The 26-year-old Everton midfielder was tackled from behind by Son and fell down after crashing into Serge Aurier.

The other Everton players were not aside, as for instance Lucas Digne, Fabian Delph, and Cenk Tosun tried to comfort Gomes, who was clearly in a lot of pain.

The Portuguese Player was taken straight to hospital on a stretcher and Son was sent off by referee Martin Atkinson.

The accident overshadowed every other thing that happened through the game.

Before the accident and in the 63rd minute Dele Alli opened the host's goal and changed the result to 1-0 for the Spurs.

Later he was accused of handball claims. In fact, just some moments after his goal, Alli was accused of the error but finally, after a three-minute delay, a penalty was not given by VAR.

Then the crash happened and finally, the match was over but there was still 12 minutes for stoppage time which gave Everton the opportunity to tie the match in the 97th minute of the match which was scored by Cenk Tosun.

People’s reaction

There were many people, reacting to the crash. One of them was Former Everton winger, Pat Nevin to talk about the incident according to BBC.

"Players looked devastated and there was utter confusion - players with their heads in their hands," he said.

"Son was distraught before he was sent off, and Serge Aurier couldn't watch and was praying.

"Gomes was led straight to the corner to the ambulance to take him to hospital."

And here are some more twits related to the accident.

What the teams’ wished for?

The match was supposed to change the teams’ ranking, especially for Tottenham as they are without a league win on the road since January. After Alli’s goal, it seemed like they have gained the three points from the match but the added time changed everything for them with Everton drawing the match 1-1-, giving their guests just one point from the match.

Before their clash yesterday the Lilywhites were sitting 13th in the premier league while Everton were 17th and now with the one point, each achieved they are 11th with the Toffies still in the same spot. This is while Spurs were meant to move eighth if they could win the match.

The match was no difference for Everton, as they seriously needed to win the match as their rivals. In fact, since Silva’s men are sitting one place above the relegation zone and have earned just three points from their previous six league matches they even needed the success more.

Coaches’ opinions

After the match, the coaches also reacted to the match and all they went through.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino wished for Gomes to recover quickly.

The coach said that it was important whether Son should have been sent off or not, although he thinks his player was given a red card because of the "consequence" of the challenge.

The 27-year-old was given a red card though he was shown a yellow one at the beginning. That made Spurs play the rest of the match with 10 players.

"It was a normal action with the bad luck that Andre was injured," according to BBC Sport.

Besides this, he and Everton manager Marco Silva both talked about the VAR.

In fact, Silva has said that he was "100% sure what happened" in both incidents after needing only a quick look at the same replays seen by VAR.

"I don't know why they needed two or three minutes and then decided what they decided," the Portuguese boss said.

"It is tough for me but tough for the referee as well."

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino added he "did not know what is going on".

"It is supposed to be helping the referee but it is creating more confusion," added the Argentine.

Everton's head coach went on to talk about his opinion of the match.

"We showed a fantastic spirit. Even after that tough moment, we had to keep focus and get a result. We deserved more than just a draw," he said.

"The first half was tough, we had problems to press a little more and even though they didn't create anything we didn't create either.

"In the second half, we made some steps forward and started to press a little more. In my opinion, we controlled the game until they scored through our mistake.

"Of course we reacted and after that tough moment we showed a reaction and could have won 2-1."

Everton's late equalizer means Tottenham, who were without striker Harry Kane through illness, have won just twice in their past 10 matches in all competitions.

"We were playing well but it's difficult to assess the last 10 minutes," Pochettino said.

"Talking only about football, it was a very difficult game. We were good but the game changed after the incident."
