Everton in the soup after fracas

Everton has banned a fan who seemed to have attempted to strike a Lyon player while holding a child during their Europa League tie as Uefa opened disciplinary proceedings after crowd trouble at Goodison Park.

The ugly scenes at yesterday morning's (Singapore time) game erupted after Ashley Williams barged into Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes midway through the second half of the 2-1 win for the French side.

The case will be dealt with by Uefa on Nov 16. - AFP
