Fan Brutally Ditches 'Son' Shirt For Chelsea Shirt With 'Lampard' On The Back
A football fan was pictured removing his Spurs shirt with 'Son' on the back to reveal a Chelsea shirt with 'Lampard' on it during yesterday's game.
Chelsea won the game 2-0 after a double from Willian and it seems this spectator wanted to be on the winning side.
The Sun have released pictures showing someone in the ground swapping his Spurs shirt with 'Son 7' on the back for a Chelsea shirt with 'Lampard 8' on it.
Son's performance yesterday perhaps warranted swapping his shirt following a red card for kicking out at Antonio Rudiger.
It's safe to assume that the supporter was a neutral due to the rivalry between Chelsea and Spurs over the years.
Sadly, yesterday's game saw the rivalry take an ugly turn in the form of racist abuse.

Rudiger was subjected to racist abuse following the red card incident and was visibly upset at the treatment from rival fans.
The Chelsea defender immediately reacted by pointing to his ear and suggested that fans were making monkey noises and gestures at him.

Back on the pitch, the result came at a perfect time for Frank Lampard's side.
Chelsea had lost four of their last five heading into this game but they dominated from the offset.
Victory has taken them four points ahead of fifth place Sheffield United in the battle for top four.
Spurs on the other hand fell to their second Premier League defeat under Jose Mourinho and are seventh, six points behind 'The Blues.'
