LIVERPOOL, England (AP) Everton has banned a supporter who appeared to aim a punch at a Lyon player in a Europa League game.

The unnamed fan, who was holding a child with one arm, targeted goalkeeper Anthony Lopes during a second-half melee that was instigated by Everton defender Ashley Williams' barge on Lopes on Thursday.

Everton says the supporter will be banned from attending future Everton fixtures.

Merseyside Police is also investigating the crowd trouble after Everton registered a complaint with the force.
