One bottle hit Olise in the head, with the forward gesturing to the home fans that he was not intimidated.

Scotland Yard confirmed it was investigating the incident, and released images of two men that officers wish to speak to.

Insp Matt Ashmead, from the central football unit, said: “The vast majority of football fans go to matches simply to enjoy themselves and support their team.

“Sadly, a small minority are intent on causing trouble and resorting to violence.
