Aaron Wan-Bissaka was struck during an ill-tempered match against Newcastle United at Selhurst Park in September.

The travelling supporters met owner Mike Ashley's first appearance at a Newcastle game since May 2017 by launching sustained chanting against his stewardship of the Tyneside club.

The England Under-21 star appeared unhurt by the incident and played on without issue or, it seemed, complaint in the match which ended 0-0.
