Lucas Digne and Matty Cash hit by missile launched by Everton fans after Aston Villa score at Goodison Park | Soccer News

A fan has been arrested after Lucas Digne and Matty Cash were both hit by a bottle while celebrating Aston Villa’s opener at Everton.

Cash and Digne – who joined Villa from Everton two weeks ago – remained on the pitch momentarily before they could continue with the game, which ended 1-0 for the visitors.

Everton and police were able to identify the individual after analyzing CCTV footage from Goodison Park.

“Police have arrested a supporter at Goodison Park for launching a missile onto the pitch during today’s Premier League match against Aston Villa,” a club statement from Everton read.

“Several objects were thrown towards the pitch after Aston Villa’s goal late in the first half, with a missile appearing to hit two opposing players.

“Investigations in conjunction with the police are ongoing, and the club will issue bans to any fans found throwing objects.”

A tannoy announcement heard during the second half at Goodison Park said: “This is a club safety announcement. If anyone is caught throwing bottles or any other object at the field, you will be arrested and banned from the club.”

After Villa’s 1-0 win, Cash spoke to BT Sports about the incident: “It was crazy. It hit me in the head.

“It’s not good to have that, but we got three points so we’ll take that.”

Asked if the bottle incident was shameful, Everton caretaker manager Duncan Ferguson said BT Sports“Yes, it is. Obviously I’ve never seen it but they shouldn’t be doing that.”
