- Striker threw flare after scoring winner against Chelsea
- Everton remain in bottom three but with a game in hand
Richarlison is facing a Football Association investigation after throwing a flare off the pitch at Goodison Park following his crucial 46th-minute winner against Chelsea.
The Everton striker launched a blue flare over the Gwladys Street end after it had been thrown onto the pitch during celebrations for a goal that could prove vital for the team’s bid to avoid relegation. No action was taken against the Brazil international by referee Kevin Friend but the FA will investigate. A written warning could follow. “We will look into the matter but, as far we are concerned, Richarlison was attempting to throw it out of the ground,” said an Everton spokesperson.
