Everton was fined for entering the pitch following Palace’s victory
Following their 3-2 victory over Palace, which guaranteed their place in the top division, Everton supporters flooded the field after Dominic Calvert-85th-minute Lewin’s winner and at the final siren.
Everton FC has publicly acknowledged having failed to make sure that its audience members – and all persons claiming to be its fans or followers – performed themself in an orderly manner and shall refrain from the use of making threats and violent behaviour while intruding onto to the pitch area,” the FA stated in a statement on Friday.
As he made his way to the away dressing room after the game, Palace manager Patrick Vieira was stuck in a troubling situation because of fans.
It also looked like Vieira tried to alert fans with the hand motions, at which point the fan was kicked to the ground and then they had to be escorted away by other fans.
Both parties declined to register a formal complaint, and Merseyside Police did not decide to press charges as a result. The FA, Premier League, and Football League imposed tougher penalties for pitch invasions and the use of smoke bombs and pyrotechnics in July in response to an uptick in such incidents at the close of the previous season. The FA decided not to file any charges against Vieira.
