Everton have been fined £300,000 by the Football Association after the field invasion that followed their win that retained their place in the Premier League.

The FA condemned the behavior of some Evertonians, saying in a statement:
“Everton admitted that he failed to ensure that the spectators – and any persons claiming to be supporters or followers – behaved in an orderly manner and refrained from threatening and violent behavior when entering the field.”
