Arsenal reveal ‘antisemitism’ incidents after Spurs clash

Arsenal have revealed an investigation has been launched into “disturbing” incidents of antisemitism following their north London derby win at Tottenham.

The Premier League leaders say one incident took place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and the other at a public house in Islington, north London.

“We have been made aware of two disturbing incidents over the weekend involving anti-Semitism which are now under investigation,” an Arsenal statement says.

“There was an incident at the north London derby on Sunday involving Arsenal supporters in which one of our fans overheard grossly offensive antisemitic statements made by another Arsenal fan.

“On the same afternoon, we were appalled to hear of an incident at The Cally pub in Islington, involving other antisemitic chants.

“We recognize the impact this behavior has on our many Jewish supporters and others and condemn the use of language of this nature, which has no place in our game or society.”
