Richarlison: Everton forward could face FA investigation after Chelsea celebration

The striker scored the game’s only goal in the 46th minute to keep Frank Lampard’s side’s fate in their own hands.

During the celebrations following Richarlison’s goal, a lit canister of blue smoke was thrown onto the pitch by supporters.

Richarlison responded by picking up the object and throwing it, though it’s unclear where it landed.

A club spokesman said: “We will look into it but, as far as we are concerned, Richarlison was trying to throw him off the ground.”

In February, Liverpool midfielder Harvey Elliott was contacted by the FA after handling a red rocket after the team’s Carabao Cup victory at Wembley.

Pyrotechnics are banned in football stadiums in England.

Everton remain in the relegation zone with five games remaining.

But victory puts them within two points of Burnley and Leeds, with the Toffees one game clear of their two rivals.
