Merseyside police have charged a 19-year-old man with assault and throwing an item on to the pitch during Aston Villa’s win at Goodison Park on Saturday.

Roger Tweedle, of Cranehurst Road, Walton, Liverpool, has been released on conditional bail and will appear at South Sefton magistrates court on 28 February.

Two Aston Villa players, Lucas Digne and Matty Cash, were struck by a plastic bottle thrown from the Bullens Road Stand while celebrating Emiliano Buendía’s match-winning goal in first-half stoppage time on Saturday.

Other objects were thrown on to the pitch and Everton are continuing to review CCTV footage in conjunction with police. The club has vowed to ban any fan identified as responsible and could issue a ban independently of any arrests made.
