Everton insist there is no police investigation into allegations by El Hadji Diouf that bananas were thrown at him at Goodison Park on Sunday.
The Blackburn player is being investigated by the Merseyside force for allegedracial abuse of a 14-year-old ball boy.
Diouf told police after the final whistle - and repeated the claim on Monte Carlo Radio - that bananas were thrown at him from the Everton crowd.
Officers immediately scoured the area next to the pitch and in the stands butno bananas were found. No pictures have surfaced to back up his claim either.
