Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira said he had no comment to make following footage of him appearing to kick an Everton fan on the Goodison Park pitch at full-time.

The Eagles suffered a dramatic 3-2 defeat on Meryseide that saw the Toffees secure their Premier League status for another season, though the match was marred by two pitch invasions from home fans.

The first occurred after Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored the winner late on before hundreds more supporters streamed onto the pitch at full-time once safety was confirmed.

Footage circulated at full-time showing the Frenchman being goaded by fans, with the Palace manager initially not responding before kicking out at the support.

When asked in his post-match press conference about the incident, Vieira said:

I do not have anything to say about that.
