Raheem Sterling, Vidi, Watford & now Crystal Palace: Chelsea fans keep singing antisemitic songs

Chelsea fans sing antisemitic song at Crystal Palace

Chelsea beat Crystal Palace 1-0 at Selhurst Park on Sunday.

N’Golo Kante scored the only goal of the game for the Blues.

However Chelsea’s victory has once again been undercut by a section of their supporters who continue to be openly antisemitic.

The Times have confirmed that Andros Townsend, a former Tottenham player, was the target of abuse from the Chelsea supporters:

A section of Chelsea fans sung an antisemitic song at Selhurst Park yesterday in the latest ugly show of defiance against the club’s resolve to clamp down on racism.

In what has become a recent theme, especially at away games, the chanting was apparent when Crystal Palace’s Andros Townsend, a former Tottenham Hotspur player, claimed possession early in the game.

Will Chelsea identify who these fans were and hand out banning order?

How can Chelsea stop this from happening in the future?

Social media reaction

Raheem Sterling, Vidi & Watford

It’s been a disastrous end to 2018 for Chelsea with regard to antisemitism.

Of course, Chelsea are owned by Roman Abramovich.

Not only is Abramovich well-known for being Jewish, this year he became Israel’s richest citizen when he became a citizen.

Nevertheless some Chelsea fans have ratcheted up their overt antisemitism as the year has closed out.

To recall the rap-sheet, racist Chelsea supporters were caught on TV verbally abusing Man City’s Raheem Sterling.

In an away match in the Europa League in Hungary against Vidi, Chelsea fans sung antisemitic songs while other supporters connected to the club were pictured with a flag packed with Nazi symbolism.

In the recent away match at Watford in the Premier League, Chelsea fans again sung antisemitic songs.

And now we have this latest incident at Crystal Palace.
