Lucas Digne was struck by a bottle thrown by an Everton fan just days after he left the Toffees to join Aston Villa.
Watch below as Digne seems to be hit by the bottle, though not on his head, as you’d guess from his reaction…
There’s no condoning throwing objects at players, but these two going down holding their faces (especially Digne) is ridiculous.

It seems a few people sharing this video think Digne and his team-mates overreacted a bit, though of course there’s still absolutely no excuse for throwing things at someone.
Everton fans would do well to show Digne a bit more sympathy, as he primarily left because of Rafael Benitez – a manager Everton fans also hated, and who has now been sacked.
