Aston Villa's Lucas Digne and Matty Cash were struck by a bottle thrown from the crowd in their side's victory at Everton on Saturday.

The plastic bottle was thrown as Villa celebrated Emi Buendia's goal just before half-time.

It appeared to land between the two players, who both stayed on the floor briefly before being able to continue.

Full-back Digne joined Villa from Everton two weeks ago after asking to leave.

Later Cash said, "It was a tough game, they threw everything forward in the last 15/20 minutes and we said we had to deal with the horrible part, we picked up the three points. Massive."

On being hit by the bottle, Cash continued: "Crazy, it hit me straight in the head, it's not nice but three points, we'll take that."
