Everton fans appear to spit on Man United supporters after FA Cup clash

Everton fans appear to spit on Man United supporters after FA Cup clash

Everton were knocked out of the FA Cup by Manchester United on Friday night

Footage has emerged which appeared to show Everton fans spitting on Manchester United supporters after Friday night’s FA Cup clash.

Coming into the match, Everton were on a seven-match winless run as the pressure on manager Frank Lampard continue to mount.

On the other hand, United have been on a fine run as they have won their last six matches, and they got off to the perfect start as Antony gave Erik ten Hag’s side the lead after four minutes.

The Toffees got back in the match 10 minutes later after a bizarre howler from goalkeeper David de Gea allowed Conor Coady to tap home.

Coady then scored again but at the wrong end as his own goal gifted United the lead in the 52nd minute. A late Marcus Rashford penalty sealed a 3-1 win for the Red Devils.

As the final whistle went, footage was posted on social media which appeared to show a few Everton fans spitting towards the direction of United supporters.

A number of fans were captured leaning over and looking like they were spitting towards fans sitting in the section below them.

The defeat by United meant that it is now eight games without a victory for Lampard, Coady insisted that the players are fighting for their manager.

He said: “We need to keep fighting. We are in a bad place, and everyone wants to get out of it. We came here with a plan and stuck to it. To lose the game to an own goal and penalty, it is gutting.

“We are not enjoying it and need to get out of it quickly. The manager is fantastic with all of us, outstanding, and he understands the football club. We need to keep listening to him.”

On his own future, Lampard stated that it is not under his control, he told ITV: “That's not under my control. It's not for me to focus on that.

“It's for me to focus on what I saw tonight and that was a performance that every manager wants with the attitude of the team and the focus.”

Up next for Everton is a huge clash in the Premier League against Southampton next weekend.
