Tottenham Hotspur lost 2-0 at home to their bitter rivals Chelsea on Sunday evening in a woeful performance, but this defeat was overshadowed by other events during the match.

Not only was Heung Min Son sent off for kicking out at Antonio Rudiger, but the Chelsea defender them claimed to have received racist chants/actions from members of the Spurs crowd.

The referee decided to stop the game at one point in order to talk to the players and the two managers, before plat proceeded.

A message was also played three times around the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium asking fans to not ruin the game with such racism.

Tottenham instigated an investigation into the incident after the match, and have reviewed footage and even employed lip readers to catch the culprit.

However, they claim that the results have been inconclusive thus far and so all comments should be reserved until the true facts have been gathered.

  1. I have read this is the second time this player has claimed this, the first being in a game vs Roma. There was no conclusive evidence in that game. Is this the boy who called wolf and given that a Chelsea fan has been arrested for the same crime against son is it time the players who claim this and there is no evidence are given a one match ban. We have opened a can of worms that some players might look to exploit for their own gain.
