Everton could find themselves in hot water with the Football Association after Saturday’s defeat at Fulham.

Referee Graham Poll had to delay the taking of a corner kick midway through the second half of the Blues’ 2-1 defeat after objects from the away end were thrown on to the field.

A match-day programme and a lighter were allegedly hurled towards Fulham winger Luis Boa Morte.

Poll confirmed: “The incident happened in the 67th minute and I will be mentioning it in my report to the FA.”

If the FA choose to act on the official’s report, then cash-strapped Everton could be facing a fine for failure to control the behaviour of their supporters.

Everton will wait until official confirmation of the report until making any comment on the incident.
