It was a very entertaining game at Goodison Park.

Everton welcomed French club Lyon to Merseyside in their Europa League Group E clash, with the home side desperately looking for a positive result after a poor run of form.

However, they got off to the worst possible start after just six minutes when Mason Holgate conceded a penalty, and Nabil Fekir tucked away the resulting spot-kick.

Everton restored parity when Ashley Williams headed home with 20 minutes to go, but Bertrand Traore quickly gave the advantage back to the away side.

That's how it finished, meaning Everton have only accumulated one point from their opening three Group E games and will now have it all to do if they are to qualify for the knock-out rounds.

However, although it was a very entertaining match, the game's biggest talking point was actually a brawl started by Williams just after the hour mark.

You can watch the brawl here:

With Anthony Lopes in possession of the ball, Williams clattered into the away goalkeeper and bundled him into the ground; instigating anger from the Lyon players.

Williams and Bertrand Traore were both booked for their roles in the incident, but the former would probably consider himself lucky he was not sent off.

However, footage has emerged of a number of Everton fans also getting involved in the incident.

And no-one can believe what one Everton fan in particular did. He seemed to have his hands full, but it did not stop him from defending Williams...
