Antonio Rudiger Racially Abused During Chelsea's Game With Tottenham

Antonio Rudiger Racially Abused During Chelsea's Game With Tottenham

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger was allegedly subjected to vile racist abuse from Spurs fans in the Blues' 2-0 victory at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The 26-year-old German centre-back was involved in an earlier second-half incident that saw Son Heung-min receive a straight red card.

But Rudiger would later be subjected to racism and was furious with his treatment from rival fans.

Chelsea winger Willian put in a superb performance as his first-half brace sealed all three points for Frank Lampard's men.

The 31-year-old Brazilian opened the scoring in the 12th minute before firing home from the spot-kick deep into first-half injury time.

UPDATE: Tottenham have now released a statement and said that racism is "completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated in our stadium."
