Tottenham ban fan for throwing cup at kepa

Tottenham have issued an immediate ban to a supporter who threw a cup at Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga during Sunday's Premier League game.

Willian scored twice as Chelsea triumphed 2-0 in the London derby, though the win was overshadowed by alleged racial abuse aimed at their defender, Antonio Rudiger.

The Germany international was targeted shortly after Son Heung-min had been sent off for kicking out at his opponent.

Metropolitan Police also confirmed that a Chelsea fan had been ejected from the stadium on Sunday after committing a racially aggravated public order offence toward Son, with the Korean joining Rudiger as players to have been on the receiving end of some ugly behaviour from fans at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

While Spurs have said their investigation into the Rudiger incident "remains ongoing", they have taken swift action after identifying the individual who threw a cup towards Kepa.

"We can confirm that we have identified and issued an immediate ban to the individual responsible for throwing a cup at Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga during Sunday's Premier League home fixture," the club said in a statement.

"We shall continue to take the strongest action possible against anyone found to be behaving in this way."
