Everton’s Joe Williams ‘eats’ Ben Pearson’s eyebrow
It’s been a few days since the Preston vs Bolton match in the Championship.
The match made headlines for a mass brawl at the end of the game.
Preston midfielder Ben Pearson was sent off for his part in the melee. Pearson was dismissed for pressing heads with Bolton’s Joe Williams.
As for Williams, who is on loan from Everton, he was booked too.
But should Williams have been sent off?
Preston fans have taken to social media this week to reveal that Everton’s Williams ‘ate’ Ben Pearson’s eyebrow during the confrontation.
Will the FA apply retrospective action against the Bolton loanee?
