Richarlison faces FA rap after lobbing flare into crowd as Everton star wildly celebrates scoring goal against Chelsea

EVERTON goal scorer Richarlison could face an FA rap after chucking a flare into the crowd after his goal.

The Toffees went 1-0 up in a crucial game against Chelsea thanks to the Brazilian tucking his effort into the bottom corner.

The resulting celebrations saw a flare end up on the pitch, which Richarlison then lobbed back into the crowd.

His reaction came after wild celebrations broke out at Goodison following the goal.

A mistake by Chelsea's Cesar Azpilicueta opened the door for a Everton goal only a minute into the second half.

Amid the scenes, a flare releasing blue smoke was chucked onto the pitch.

At the end of his celebrations, Richarlison took the flare and appeared to throw into the home supporters.

It is not clear where the flare ended up after his throw.
