Everton Fans Charged After Striking Lyon Players

Ashley Williams looked to have earned his side a point with a thumping header that came just moments after the defender sparked a mass brawl between both sides, but nine minutes later, former Chelsea youngster Bertrand Traore found the back of the net with a backheeled effort which was aided by a deflection off Michael Keane.

They said: 'We have identified one individual whom action will now be taken against.

The fan, holding a baby, appeared to throw a punch at a Lyon player. This will include a ban from attending future Everton fixtures & club registering a complaint with Merseyside Police'.

The police issued their own statement, which confirmed they were also looking into the matter.

The pressure has been increasing on him, with his side tasting victory in only two of their last 12 games in all competitions, and Thursday's Europa League loss to Lyon extending their winless run to four matches.

"Detectives will be reviewing footage and speaking to witnesses to establish what, if any, offences have been committed".

Later she breaks it down, saying "You make me so happy it turns back to sad" before she laments stumbling home to her cats alone. It's scary-good observational humor: "You should take it as a compliment, that I'm talking to everyone here but you", she sings.

Williams was only cautioned for his part in the fracas, though further punishment for both teams is likely when UEFA takes action.

Williams instigated the ugly scenes when he shoved Lopes off the pitch as the goalkeeper went up to make a catch on the byline.

"It's what happens, it's football". But I am proud that we were strong at 1-1 we won the game despite everything. "It is what it is", said Williams after the game. "That was just one of those times".

Everton were hoping to get their Europa League campaign going against Lyon tonight.

"I think the irritation grows in the game for our players and in my opinion that was the problem by the referee", Koeman argued. The Toffees found themselves a goal behind after just five minutes after Nabil Fekir coolly converted a penalty after full-back Fernando Marçal was clumsily taken out by Mason Holgate.

That's how it finished, meaning Everton have only accumulated one point from their opening three Group E games and will now have it all to do if they are to qualify for the knock-out rounds.
