Amadou Onana has shared a photo of the nasty eye injury he suffered in Everton's victory over Brentford.

Onana required treatment in the first half after clashing heads with team-mate James Tarkowski. The midfielder continued before being subbed in the 79th minute.

After the win, Onana posed for a picture with Idrissa Gana Gueye in the Toffees dressing room - showing that his right eye had closed over. The Belgium international posted on Instagram: "Looks pretty good ya know."

Everton return to action when they travel to Chelsea on Saturday.
