It was an interesting night of football at Goodison Park, as Everton overcame a 2-0 deficit with three second-half goals.  Everton became officially clear of the bottom three relegation places and will return to the Premier League next season.

After the pitch was cleared and the game proceeded, an even larger throng of fans rushed onto the field as the final whistle blew, celebrating with the players.

However while most supporters were enjoying the moment, some appeared to harass Vieira as he attempted to leave the field which triggered reactions from the Palace manager.

A statement from Merseyside Police said: “We are working with Everton FC to gather all available CCTV footage and are speaking to witnesses. No formal complaint has been received and enquiries into the incident are ongoing.”

When Vieira was asked about it in his post-match press conference, he said: “I’ve got nothing to say about that.” He also expressed his satisfaction as to how the pitch invasion was managed by the referee.

Meanwhile, Everton manager Frank Lampard added: “I feel for Patrick and I didn’t get him [to shake hands] at the end because of the reaction. He ran across the pitch 80 yards in front of our fans but there’s no issue. Just pure elation from our fans at staying in the league.”
