    An Everton fan has been slightly injured and a Belgian police officer hurt in separate incidents in Brussels.

    Officers from Merseyside police, in Belgium as observers, reported seeing a large group of fans enjoying and behaving themselves ahead of the match between Anderlecht and Everton.

    But one fan was hurt following a confrontation with home supporters after Everton fans got off at the wrong metro station as they made their way to the game.

    After the match, which Everton lost 2-0, a Belgian police officer was injured as supporters of the Merseyside club were moved away from the stadium to a local station.

    A number of bricks were thrown during the disturbance, a spokesman for Merseyside police said.
