Violence erupted in the Millwall section, where fans began fighting amongst themselves and then with the police.
Wigan won the match 2-0 and went on to lift the trophy.
Everton's new star striker Richarlison opened the scoring after his effort from outside the box managed to hit the net after some questionable keeping.
But Millwall pulled one back shortly before half-time, courtesy of a looping Lee Gregory header.
The weather conditions helped neither side as the pitch became increasingly unplayable due to relentless rain.
Everton came out strongly in the second period of the match but it wasn't enough to see off a resilient Millwall side, who scored a late winner.
