Everton have been charged by the Football Association (FA) for pitch invasions during their Premier League victory over Crystal Palace in May.
Frank Lampard’s side recovered from two goals down to win 3-2 at Goodison Park and secure their top-flight status.
Home supporters encroached the pitch after Dominic Calvert-Lewin had completed the comeback and again when their survival was confirmed following the full-time whistle.
Palace boss Patrick Vieira was involved in an altercation with an Everton supporter during the second pitch invasion, but the FA and Merseyside Police took no further action.
The FA announced on Monday that Everton have been charged with two breaches of rule E20, which relates to fan behaviour and safety.
The statement added: “It is alleged that in the 84th minute and then following completion of the fixture, Everton FC failed to ensure that its spectators, and all persons purporting to be its supporters or followers, conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and refrained from using threatening and/or violent behaviour while encroaching onto the pitch area.”
Everton have until July 18 to provide a response.
