After the full-time whistle and Everton’s Premier League safety was secured, thousands of fans invaded the pitch at Goodison Park.

A late Dominic Calvert-Lewin goal rounded off a remarkable comeback for the home side, who had fallen 2-0 behind at the break after goals from Jean Philippe Mateta and Jordan Ayew.

Only days after Sheffield United striker Billy Sharp was assaulted after Nottingham Forest beat the Blades at the City Ground, a video emerged on social media appearing to show a supporter goading Palace boss Patrick Vieira.

Vieira then appears to react to the fan and kicks him to the ground as the Frenchman tried to make his way across the pitch.

You can watch the video below.

Sky Sports presenter Dave Jones said: “This is Patrick Vieira trying to walk across Goodison Park at the end of the game and you can see the baiting he is taking. He has got to walk across there because the dressing rooms are in that corner. But Patrick reacts to the fan.”

When asked about the incident after the game, Vieira simply replied: “I do not have anything to say about that.”

Everton boss Frank Lampard would later say: “I feel for Patrick. I didn’t get him at the end. I would have said, ‘come in with us’ – although he might not have wanted that.

“Of course he ran 80 yards across the pitch and it’s not easy.”

On the pitch invasion itself Lampard said: “It was pure elation of fans who have come on the pitch after avoiding relegation.

“If it is done in the right way let them stay on the pitch, let them have their moment. As long as they behave, no problem.”
