Liverpool fans left seething after what Richalison did against Chelsea


Liverpool fans have asked the FA to launch an investigation into Richarlison's flare throw in Chelsea's defeat on Sunday

Camera caught Richalison throwing the flare back to Everton crowd

The Merseyside Blues' rival supporters were quick to question whether the forward could face some retrospective action, months after the FA contacted Liverpool over a similar incident involving Harvey Elliott.

The object was thrown onto the Goodison Park pitch after the Brazilian opened the scoring in the Toffees’ pivotal Premier League clash with Chelsea . The chance came about after Cesar Azpilicueta surrendered position in front of goal.

Demarai Gray poked the ball through and Richarlison made no mistake, scoring his ninth goal of the league season. His strike sparked wild scenes of celebration, with Everton desperate for all three points in their battle against the drop.

Burnley's remarkable run of form in recent weeks has seen Everton drop into the bottom three, going into the game against Chelsea five points behind Leeds having played two games fewer. A win for Frank Lampard's side would reignite their hopes of survival and the celebrations reflected what a huge moment Richarlison's goal could be.

And as he celebrated in front of the Gwladys Street end, a blue flare was thrown onto the pitch, with Sky Sports cameras showing him appearing to throw it back from where it came.

Ahead of Everton's Merseyside derby vs Liverpool at Anfield last week, the Goodison Park club sent a message to fans regarding the use of pyrotechnics by their supporters.

"Everton Football Club does not condone the use of pyrotechnics under any circumstances," the statement reads. "Any fan found using them will be subject to action by the Club and Police.

"Away Clubs use various techniques to detect the possession and use of pyrotechnics. Any person found in possession of such items is liable to arrest which could result in a criminal conviction and subsequent football ban."
