Arsenal have revealed they are investigating an alleged anti-Semitic incident that is said to have occurred during their 2-0 defeat to Tottenham.
Mauricio Pochettino’s menemerged victorious on Wednesday at the Emirates thanks to goals from Heung-min Son and Dele Alli, though their triumph was marred by negative scenes.
A separate incident saw Allihit by a plastic bottlethrown from the home supporters and responding with a gesture to remind them his team were 2-0 ahead.
The home side claim to have now identified the individual who threw the object andissued a statementon Thursday to say they are liaising with police to apprehend the culprit.
Later in the day, Arsenal released another statement, this time addressing alleged anti-Semitic chants/gestures from the club’s supporters.
It read: “We are aware of the alleged incident and are currently investigating.
“We do not tolerate any anti-social, discriminatory or violent behaviour at Arsenal Football Club. Anyone identified will receive a lengthy club ban and their details will be passed to the Police to commence legal proceedings.
“We are continually reminding our fans if they witness any form of discriminatory chanting at a match, they can report it to a matchday steward or use our ‘See Something, Say Something’ service by texting “FOUL” to 67777 together with a description of the incident.
“This enables us to act as quickly as possible.”
