The FA have asked West Bromwich Albion midfielder to explain why he jumped into the crowd to confront spectators during last night's Premier League match against West Ham.

Livermore, 28, was captured on camera leaping over advertising boards in order to confront a fan, or fans, that he believed had made derogatory statements.

However according to supporters situated in that particular area of the ground, the former Tottenham player misheard or misinterpreted a comment relating to his previous employers.

Livermore, who lost his baby son three years ago believed that the fan in question was referring to the tragic loss - and reacted accordingly.

However that wasn't the case according to an East Stand season ticket holder, who told KUMB: "The incident happened right next to me.

"Someone shouted something about drugs and Livermore being 'a y*d' - he must have though the guy said something about his kid. It never happened though, and the next thing Livermore was in the crowd."

Livermore escaped an FA ban despite testing positive for cocaine shortly after the loss of his child in 2014. He also suffered successive bouts of depression at the time.
