Luckless James McCarthy suffers apparent broken leg

James Mc Carthy was stretchered off after suffering an apparent broken leg in Everton's game against West Brom

We all wish McCarthy a speedy recovery, and hope that the injury doesn't keep him out of action for as long as it's initially feared.

Ireland and Everton midfielder James McCarthy appeared to suffer a serious injury thought to be a leg break during the match against West Brom.

McCarthy had to be stretchered off after a collision with Salomon Rondon. In the 58th-minute, McCarthy tracked Baggies striker Salomon Rondon as he bore down on goal having been played through by Gareth Barry.

Update 5.25pm: Everton have confirmed that Ireland midfielder has suffered a double leg fracture.

The sight of the injury left Rondon - who was not at fault, but was unfortunately responsible for the injury - in tears. West Brom manager Alan Pardew came on to the pitch to console his player.

Of course, the extent of Coleman's involvement was to perhaps offer a few much-needed words of encouragement to his club and worldwide teammate. While the full-back is set for a return to competitive action after nine months out, his club and global teammate will nearly certainly be out for as long, if not longer.

Coleman, still not fit enough for a return to the Everton first-team, watched the Toffees' clash with West Brom from a directors' box.
