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. 

Son Heung-min racist abuse

Footage that has emerged after the game appears to show a racist gesture aimed at Son.

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.
