Police spoke with three Chelsea supporters following reports of alleged anti-Semitic chanting on the train following their 2-1 win over Brighton, it has emerged.

It is the latest ugly ordeal to taint the reputation of the Blues in the past eight days after their fans had been accused ofsinging an anti-Semitic song in the Europa League draw at Vidi in Hungary on Thursday.

Chelsea have been hit by yet more controversy

Travelling fans in Budapest were also shown on social media holding a Chelsea Headhunters flag featuring a Nazi symbol.

The previous Saturday, Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling was allegedly racially abused and it resulted infour Chelsea supporters being suspended pending further investigation.

“Officers received reports of antisemitic chanting on board a train … at around 4pm yesterday afternoon,” a British Transport Police statement said.

“BTP attended and three men were spoken to by officers, but at this time no one has come forward to make a complaint.”

Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck met with supporters before the Brighton match

Prior to the match at the Amex Stadium, Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck had met with supporters, insisting they represent the club in the correct manner and it was important for them to repair their image, given the recent controversies.

The chanting is all the more bizarre considering Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich, is Jewish.

The billionaire, who purchased the club in 2003, launched a campaign in January to educate people about anti-Semitism in football as they seek to change behaviour and attitudes.
