Police have released images of eight Aston Villa fans they want to speak to after stewards and officers were attacked when a goal was disallowed.
Disorder broke out during the Crystal Palace v Aston Villa match at Selhurst Park, in London, on August 31 after a last-gasp equaliser for Villa was ruled out.
Referee Kevin Friend decided to not allow Henri Lansbury’s goal in added time because he felt his teammate Jack Grealish had dived just before passing him the ball.
A number of fans ran on to the area near the pitch and attacked stewards and later police, the Met Police said.
Villa lost the Premier League game 1-0, with Palace striker Jordan Ayew scoring the only goal in the 73rd minute.
Several people have been arrested and officers are urging the public to help identify the men in the pictures.
Detective Sergeant Matt Simpson said: “People go to football matches for a good time, not to witness or experience violence.
