Several plastic bottles were thrown onto the field as the stars congratulated each other in the offensive scene.

But while the majority missed, the Polish midfielder and the French full-back were both hit and immediately left the field.

After the game, Cash described the incident to BT Sport, saying: “It was crazy, it hit me right in the head, it wasn’t pretty but three points, we’ll take that.”

Police and warden stormed Bullens Road standing as rockets – including lighters, bottles and A BAGUETTE – throw at the Villa’s celebratory stars.

A fan has been arrested and the incident will be investigated by police and the FA.

Toffees carer boss Duncan Ferguson condemned the shocking scenes, saying: “They shouldn’t have done that.”

Everton also released a strong statement: “Police arrested a fan for throwing a rocket at the pitch. Everton security officers and Merseyside Police identified the supporter using CCTV footage.

“Several objects were thrown behind Villa’s goal towards the end of the first half, with a missile appearing to hit two players.

“Investigations in conjunction with police are underway and the club will issue a restraining order against any fan identified as a thrower.”

“Several objects were hurled towards the pitch after Aston Villa’s goal late in the first half, with a missile appearing to hit two opposing players.

“Investigations in conjunction with police are underway and the Club will issue a restraining order against any fan who identifies the thrower.”

Police Chief Mark Roberts, head of the UK’s Football Policy Unit, admitted fan disorder was “getting worse”, with arrests at matches across five leagues. British premier league at its highest level in years.

There were 800 football-related arrests in the first six months of the season, plus 750 reported disturbances.

Everton faced fines from the FA for their fan behavior while Kenwright was the target when a light plane flew over the stadium before the game, dragging a banner with the message: ” 22 years of failure, Bill, it’s time.”

Post-match protests included a sign that read “Board Wrap” while another declared: “Kenwright and Co it’s time to go.”

The Toffees were just four points from the relegation zone and boos rang out late in the game.

Majority owner Farhad Moshiri took over six years ago and is now looking for his seventh manager.

He has overseen a loss of £269m since 2019. Previous financial rules allowed for £105m in any three-year period.
