Tottenham vs Chelsea: Spurs confirm fan arrested for alleged use of homophobic language
Tottenham have confirmed a fan has been arrested for allegedly using homophobic language during Sunday’s 2-0 win over Chelsea.
Following the match at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, it emerged that homophobic chanting coming from a home area of the stadium had been reported.
The chanting was reported to have taken place before kick-off and again after Chelsea winger Hakim Ziyech was shown a red card – which was subsequently rescinded – just before half-time.
Responding to a Twitter post from a Spurs fan highlighting the abuse, Tottenham said: “We can confirm an individual was arrested for use of homophobic language.
“There is no place for discrimination at Tottenham Hotspur.”
Sky Sports News has contacted Metropolitan Police for comment.
