Chelsea are aware of and are investigating a possible instance of racist abuse directed at Tottenham Hotspur’s Son Heung-min during Sunday’s 2-2 draw between the clubs at Stamford Bridge, The Athletic reveals.
The incident occurred when Son Heung-min went to take a corner in the second half of the match and was met by abuse from supporters in the corner of the Shed End.
Spurs twice came from behind secure a draw in Sunday’s match. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg equalised after Kalidou Koulibaly’s first-half opener, before Harry Kane’s late header cancelled out Reece James’s strike and earned the away side a point.
Son Heung-min Racist Abuse in Premier League
In April 2021, Manchester United suspended three season-ticket holders after Son received online abuse following Spurs’ 3-1 defeat by the Old Trafford club.
In 2019, a West Ham United supporter was fined for racially abusing Son in a Carabao Cup tie.
Spurs host Wolverhampton Wanderers in the next round of Premier League fixtures.
