James McCarthy Suffers Double Leg Break

Everton's game against West Brom on Saturday was defaced by a horrifying injury to Republic of Ireland universal James McCarthy.

The midfielder made a lung-blasting run to get back and keep Salomon Rondon from scoring a specific goal on the hour mark, only to break his leg in the procedure.

Rondon clashed with McCarthy's leg instead of the ball, causing the Everton man to leave the pitch on a stretcher having been administered oxygen.

Such was the degree of the injury that Rondon was noticeably lessened to tears on the pitch.

Everton boss Sam Allardyce affirmed after the match that McCarthy had broken both his tibia and fibula.
