Midfielder Andre Gomes was launched in the match between Arsenal and Everton, marking the return after just 4 months of treating an ankle fracture.
59 minutes into the match between Everton and Arsenal in the 27th Premier League, Andre Gomes was coached by coach Carlo Ancelotti. The moment Gomes stepped into the Emirates grass lawn was much welcomed by many fans. Just 4 months ago, Gomes suffered a very serious injury after hitting Son Heung-min on the ball.
In nearly 30 minutes on the pitch, Andre Gomes made 28 passes, achieving an accuracy rate of 89%. The Portuguese player is wide-ranging and actively disputes with the opponent. Gomes had an opportunity to clear the Arsenal defense in the 89th minute, giving Dominic Calvert-Lewin the opportunity to face the keeper but the Everton striker was not fast enough to finish the goal.
In addition to that phase, Gomes has many passing situations that open up opportunities for teammates. He received a yellow card in stoppage time after a tactical foul, countering the opponent’s counterattack. Gomes’ efforts were not enough to help Everton escape the 2-3 defeat against hosts Arsenal.
Gomes’ injury came in a match between Everton and Tottenham on November 3. The cause of the situation above came from a dispute between two players that Son said he was badly playing by the opponent.
Son then sought to retaliate. 79 minutes, Son mixed the ball from behind was very malicious with Gomes. The Portuguese midfielder fell, lost his momentum and rushed into the nearby defender, Serge Aurier. It was the rush to the opponent that Gomes broke his ankle, had to breathe oxygen and go to emergency.
Gomes’ injury made the fans scared. However, he recovered very quickly from injury and trained with his teammates since January. By the match against Arsenal on February 23, Gomes was back.
Son cried after the ball and the opponent broke his leg. The striker received a direct red card and was suspended for 3 matches, but was later suspended by the Premier League organizers.
