Premier League calls on fans to behave

Premier League calls on fans to behave

Chelsea football club's billionaire Russian owner Roman Abramovich has requested personal updates on the club's efforts to stamp out racism following anti-Semitic chants by fans on Thursday, according to reports.

Two of the men caught on camera abusing Sterling have since come forward to deny using racist language, Chelsea fear a lack of CCTV will hamper their bid to identify those involved in the anti-semitic chanting.

Chelsea will be looking to cement their place in the top four with a win at Brighton on Sunday afternoon. "To point the finger at one football club, I think it's really unfair".

"Any individuals that can't summon the brainpower to comprehend this simple message and are found to have shamed the club by used using anti-Semitic or racist words or actions will face the strongest possible action from the club", the spokesman added.

Fabregas is happy for Chelsea to be "taught a lesson" if it leads to the eradication of such behaviour, but he feels some are unjustly targeting the club as a whole based on the actions of a minority.

"I think Chelsea made the right statement", the Italian, who is now in charge at Fulham, said on Friday.

"We completely endorse the club's strong statement and would support them in any robust action which they now take against the perpetrators".

Chelsea are keen to hold on to him, but his lack of regular game time in the Premier League has led to speculation over his future and he has takers in England and overseas.

Describing the incident as "thoroughly depressing", the council echoed Chelsea's condemnation of the chants.

He started his Blues career in impressive style as he netted six goals in his first six Premier League appearances. Unfortunately it's not the one I want.

"For me, you have to be all involved in this situation and to respect our opponents, to respect ourselves and to look to the football to enjoy, like a party".

Midfield: We will see changes in midfield as Jorginho and N'Golo Kante will both be recalled having been given a rest in the Europa League.

But this year under Sarri, Danny Drinkwater is yet to play a single minute of competitive football (apart from the Community Sheild).
