Everton‘s Europa League match with Lyon descended into utter chaos last night, with one fan appearing to lunge toward the Ligue 1 side’s goalkeeper.
And Sky Sports News presenter Jim White is absolutely furious over the scenes that unfolded at Goodison Park, as the Toffees lost 2-1.
Everton defender Ashley Williams seemed to spark the melee near Lyon’s goal, which saw an Everton fan – carrying a small child – appear to push Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes.
UEFA have stepped in and charged Everton with “aggression by supporters against players”, meanwhile the club has announced they have banned the supporter in an official statement.
