The FA subsequently fined Everton a whopping £300,000 for the scenes that followed after the game was completed.
The FA and Premier League are starting to crack down on pitch invasions by fans, which probably explains why the fine seems a bit high compared to previous incidents.
Fortunately for Everton, it’s just a fine and not a point deduction or a stadium ban. Banning fans from entering the stadium for a game or two could have a big effect on Everton, who sometimes rely heavily on their fans to drag them through games.
