Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes plays down Goodison Park melee

Everton have issued a lifetime ban to a supporter amid a police investigation into a pitchside brawl between the Toffees and Lyon in their UEFA Europa League clash at Goodison Park on Thursday.

Anthony Lopes suggests that the second-half fracas in Lyon's meeting with Everton was a good thing as it "woke up the home fans".

Some of the Lyon players appeared shocked, and understandably so, that someone would behave such a way with a small child in his hands. "This will include a ban from attending future Everton fixtures and the Club registering a formal complaint with Merseyside Police".

The case will be dealt with by UEFA's control, ethics and disciplinary body on November 16.

Everton were fined €10,000 in September after crowd trouble in their match with Hajduk Split. After just six minutes, Nabil Fekir scored a penalty for Lyon, and the French side had an excellent chance to double their lead but Memphis Depay couldn't finish despite being one-on-one with Jordan Pickford in the Everton goal.

"Ashley Williams and Everton will surely face further sanction from UEFA once video evidence is studied", he said in the Daily Mail. "That was just one of those times".

Arsenal were in Europa League action on Thursday as well, beating Red Star Belgrade 1-0 away, and also had notable players missing who are expected to be back involved this weekend, including Alexis Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette.

"I like that mentality - he showed his face yesterday, he played well, he was the captain on the pitch".

"The referee was Dutch but he didn't do anything against the theatre of some of the Lyon players".

"I understand his situation of yesterday, his personal situation".

A defeat to Lyon extends Everton's run of games without a win to four, having won just two of their last 12 games with pressure mounting on Koeman every day.
