UFC star Meatball Molly spotted among Everton fans in Goodison Park invasion

UFC favourite 'Meatball' Molly McCann joined in the pitch invasion as Everton celebrated Premier League survival.

McCann is good friends with fellow MMA star Paddy Pimblett, but unlike Liverpool fanatic Paddy, McCann is a true blue. And she showed her colours to full effect on an emotional night at Goodison Park.

Everton fought back from 2-0 down to beat Crystal Palace 3-2 and secure their Premier League status, sparking an emotional pitch invasion. Although some idiots among the club's fanbase got involved with some of the Palace players, including one who taunted Patrick Vieira, most of the celebrations were good natured and focused on the jubilation of Everton's survival.

Fans gathered in throngs around the Goodison Park dugouts after the players had moved upstairs to the Main Stand to celebrate what they had achieved. And as the cameras panned out onto the hoards of supporters on the pitch, they captured UFC warrior McCann giving it some proper welly.

Sat atop someone's shoulders, the Scouse fighter could be seen waving her arms about and shouting as she joined in the party with thousands of other jubilant Evertonians.

Earlier, a video emerged of McCann among the group gathered outside Goodison Park attempting to inspire the players before the crunch clash against Palace. Again atop someone's shoulders, McCann could be seen singing and waving a flare in the air.

After the match, she posted an emotional statement on her Instagram story describing how much Everton meant to her and how it felt to avoid relegation after such a tumultuous season at the club.

"I can't describe what today felt like," she began. "Frank coming in, stepping up and doing all he could with his team. And they f***ing did it. The proudest second half I've ever seen us play! Players if you see this I couldn't be any more proud to be a blue."

Victory over Palace guaranteed Everton's survival with one game to spare. The final relegation spot will now be filled by either Leeds or Burnley, with both teams facing crunch matches on the final day of the season.
