James McCarthy has undergone a successful operation after suffering a terrible injury on Saturday.

The 27-year-old fractured both the tibia and fibula in his right leg as he tackled West Brom’s Salomon Rondon during the 1-1 draw at Goodison Park.

McCarthy had only returned from an injury lay-off at the end of December and was playing just his third league game of the season.

“Just a quick message to say that my operation went well, thanks to all the staff involved!” he said on Instagram.
