Luckless James McCarthy suffers apparent broken leg

James Mc Carthy leg break

A "devastated" Salomon Rondon has offered his support to James McCarthy after the Everton midfielder suffered a double leg break in the Toffees' 1-1 draw with West Brom on Saturday.

The incident occurred when McCarthy executed a fearless last-ditch tackle on Salomon Rondon as the West Brom attacker bore down on goal.

Medics rushed onto the field to treat McCarthy with Rondon in tears having seen the after-effects close up and Seamus Coleman, only just recovered from a serious double fracture of the leg himself, was seen leaving his seat in the directors' box apparently to be with his Republic of Ireland teammate.

"His tibia and fibula have been broken from his really fearless efforts to stop West Brom with a possible scoring opportunity". He's paid a heavy price for his commitment there. I think it very much depends on the specialist or surgeon that deals with it.

It did, however, end a run of four successive defeats and earn their first point since Boxing Day.

"I actually thought I was already there when I left Crystal Palace because if you counted Limerick I was well past 1,000 games, but unfortunately those games weren't added because it wasn't a full-time professional football club".

"Every time we come up against a team not in that echelon at the top - and let's put Burnley in there, hats off to them - everybody else will be under pressure".

Premier LeagueWest Brom boss Alan Pardew is aiming to keep the relegation scrap wide open as the Baggies battle for survival.

The Merseysiders had to endure relentless pressure in the closing stages to hang onto their point, with Pickford catching a rasping effort from Phillips in the 79th minute, before Rondon forced him into a one-handed save with a swerving shot soon afterwards.
