Tottenham ban fan after Kepa incident

Tottenham ban fan after Kepa incident

Last weekend's game between Chelsea and Tottenham stole the headlines for plenty of reasons, with there being a red card for Son Heung-min, alleged racist abuse towards Antonio Rudiger, and also keepers being bombarded by cups.

Tottenham Hotspur have issued a statement indicating that they have banned the fan that was responsible for throwing a cup at Chelsea' Kepa Arrizabalaga during the game.

The cup narrowly missed Kepa' head, just a few moments after Son received a red card after a conflict with Rudiger.

As the score was 2-0 to Chelsea, the Spurs players and fans were all getting frustrated more and more, highlighted by Son's red card that further increased the tensions in the ground.

Apart from banning the fan, the statement also included the numerous ground regulations of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, as well as emphasising that only the strongest action will be taken against anyone that violates them.

The statement read "We can confirm that we have identified and issued an immediate ban to the individual responsible for throwing a cup at Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga during Sunday’s Premier League home fixture."

It also added that the club "shall continue to take the strongest action possible against anyone found to be behaving in this way."

The game was also marred by several allegations that fans racially abused Rudiger, and then a Chelsea fan being arrested for racially abusing Son after his red card.
