​FA investigate Everton after object thrown during Chelsea clash

Everton and the Football Association are investigating after an object was thrown towards former Toffees player Ross Barkley during the Premier League win over Chelsea on Sunday, reports BBC Sport.

The incident occurred in the seventh minute as Chelsea took a corner in front of Goodison Park's Gwladys Street End but the item did not hit anyone.

It was Barkley's first trip to Everton since a £15m move to Chelsea in 2018.

The FA have written to both clubs asking for their observations.

Everton told BBC Sport in a statement: "We are investigating the alleged incident and reviewing footage. If anyone is found responsible for this or other such incidents, the club will take robust action."
