Tottenham Hotspur may have put in a woeful display against Chelsea at the weekend, sinking to a 2-0 defeat, but the result was overshadowed by events during the game.

Heung Min Son was shown a straight red card after VAR reviewed his kick out at Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger, the winger’s third red card in a year.

The Chelsea defender then claimed he had heard racial abuse coming from the Tottenham crowd, with the referee stopping the match to talk to both players and managers.

A message was then played around the ground asking those responsible to stop.

Tottenham have now announced that their investigation into the alleged abuse is still ongoing, although they have now issued a ban to one fan from the Chelsea match.

This supporter was guilty of throwing a cup at Chelsea keeper Kepa during the match, something that goes against the Tottenham Ground Regulations, which includes throwing projectiles, racist abuse, and entry into areas of the stadium where fans are not allowed.
