Oumar Niasse rescues Everton against West Bromwich Albion

James Mc Carthy Broken Leg injury

Everton and West Bromwich Albion have played out a 1-1 draw in a Premier League encounter at Goodison Park marred by a serious injury to Toffees midfielder James McCarthy.

Instead it was an nearly innocuous challenge from the Irishman as Salomon Rondon went to kick the ball with the forward already through his kick and he had to be consoled by his own teammate as the injured player was stretchered off.

Things went from bad to worse for Everton, who fielded new signing Theo Walcott from Arsenal, when 27-year-old McCarthy sustained his injury after the interval as he tried to prevent West Brom's Salomon Rondon from shooting. As Rondon followed through, it snapped McCarthy's leg.

The Irish worldwide was stretchered off and early reports are that McCarthy has suffered a double fracture of his right leg. His teammates and manager Alan Pardew attempted to console him while medical personnel attended to McCarthy.
