Following the last away trip by Crystal palace to Goodison Park, Patrick Vieira‘s side, which led as much as 0-2 at first half, with goals from J. Mateta and J. Ayew in the 21st and 36th minutes of play, were completely annihilated and overturned in the second half of play by The Toffees, thus causing an uproar as fans made their way into the pitch arena, in celebration of the 84th minute winning goal by Calvert-Lewin D.. A winning goal, from a 0-2 comeback, cementing Everton’s escape from the EPL relegation zone.
As a multitude of home fans made their way into the pitch, Patrick Vieira was goaded by an usual fan during the invasion. The Everton fan yelled at Vieira, as he danced unsteadily around him in the post-match mayhem, flicking the V-sign in his face. He kicked out at the fan and could now face punishment by the FA for retaliating. WATCH VIDEO 👇🏻
