UEFA charge Everton after fans strike Lyon players


Everton are facing punishment from UEFA after being charged over an ugly brawl in their Europa League clash with Lyon which fans became involved in.

Ashley Williams was fortunate not to see red when he needlessly shoved Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes to the floor under a high ball in the 64th minute of the Toffees' 2-1 defeat, before squaring up to Bertrand Traore.

As the fracas spilled off the pitch towards the advertising hoardings, a man holding a child reached over and appeared to slap Lopes, while other fans were seen grabbing at the visiting players.

But European football's governing body have taken a dim view, charging the Premier League club with "aggressions by supporters against players - Art.

A statement added: "This case will be dealt with by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on 16 November."
