Arsenal are currently investigating allegations that some of their fans engaged in anti-Semitic behaviour during the match against Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday.

While the game ended 2-0 to Spurs courtesy of goals from Son Heung-Min and Dele Alli, there were some unsavoury incidents during the game including one which saw an Arsenal fan hurl a projectile at Dele Alli.

It has also been alleged that some Arsenal fans made anti-semitic gestures, including a ‘hissing’ sound to mimic the gas chambers used during the Holocaust.

Arsenal have confirmed that they are investigating the incident and have released a statement on their official site, saying: “We are aware and are currently investigating. We do not tolerate any anti-social, discriminatory or violent behaviour at Arsenal Football Club. Anyone identified will receive a lengthy club ban and their details will be passed to the police to commence legal proceedings.”

This incident comes just days after Chelsea fans were accused of anti-semitic chants in Budapest during their game against MOL Vidi.

The incident is being investigated by UEFA at present. The last meeting between Arsenal and Spurs two and a half years ago also witnessed yet another ugly incident as a Spurs fan threw a banana skin at Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The fan in question has been identified and handed a lengthy ban.

  1. It has become increasingly sad when repeated unfounded suggestions that Poch should leave Spurs and go to another club. The sad part is it’s just another comment which shows for what ever reasons; most of you don’t like Spurs anyway, so why are you all trying to disrupt their program. The only interest you all have in Spurs is to take our best prospects to try and improve your dismal performances. Example, and this comes from a rival player UNSPORTSMAN LIKE CHARACTER, namely Eden Hazard made a national comment , he doesn’t want Spurs to win anything; now why would a player make that comment as three of his countrymen play for Spurs, as it also shows other teams attitude when playing Spurs, another comment, kick them of their feet for what?. You all can go jump in a lake and take all those false rumors and your nasty attitudes with about Poch’s interest in moving, it’s all lies.
    You have a nice day too, Joker.
