Police are currently investigating a 23-year-old man on suspicion of using anti-Semitic language before the Tottenham-Chelsea Carabao Cup semi-final on Tuesday (BBC).

Tottenham went on to win the game 1-0 after a Harry Kane penalty, but the tie may be overshadowed by yet more racism and anti-Semitism in football.

This comes after a 17-year-old was arrested on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence before the match, along with a another 20-year-old.

Both sets of fans had been warned by clubs and players alike before kick off in an attempt to keep the occasion about football alone.

However, it appears these pleas were overlooked by a select few so-called ‘fans’ letting down their entire fanbases.

The investigation comes after Chelsea have had a recent spell of homophobia, racism, and anti-Semitism.

A fan was banned for three years for homophobic chants a few days ago, with four supporters suspended last month for alleged racial abuse towards Raheem Sterling.

Not to mention the anti-Semitic chants by some Chelsea fans in December, during a Europa League match in Hungary (BBC).
