Newcastle United travelled to Selhurst Park this afternoon to take on Crystal Palace in a Premier League clash. Enduring a difficult start to the season, the 0-0 draw that would be played out between both sides is unlikely to be the main talking-point taken from this game.
Crystal Palace's Aaron Wan-Bissaka appears to have been struck by a bottle thrown from a Newcastle United fan in the crowd.
It is as yet uncertain why the Palace player was targeted, but viewers claim to have seen the beer bottle hit Wan-Bissaka on the chest.

It is perhaps notable that Newcastle's detested owner Mike Ashley was in attendance for today's game in Selhurst Park.
The England U21 international is currently enjoying a tremendous start to the season, and Crystal Palace currently sit 11th in the table after 6 games played.
