If the altercation between the two tacticians Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte at the end of the meeting obsessed the attention, the match between Chelsea and Tottenham (2-2), during the second day of the Premier League at Stamford Bridge at the weekend last, was the scene of other highlights.
In addition to Kanté's injury, it is the racist insults uttered against Spurs striker Son Heung-min who are taken very seriously by the 3rd of last season.
As he was about to take a corner in the second half, the South Korean striker was allegedly the victim of racist insults from a Blues supporter.
The English club announced this Thursday, in a press release, to open an investigation: “Chelsea Football Club considers any form of discriminatory behavior totally abhorrent.
This has no place in Chelsea or any of our communities.
Club statement on racist abuse.

The club said it was ready to take the "strongest" measures if the facts are proven.
“There are still these kind of idiots who call themselves supporters, which puts Chelsea FC, our coaches, our players, our staff and our real supporters to shame,” the club lamented.
The London club actively fights against this kind of behavior.
Chelsea have already banned supporters from their stadium for life who indulge in racist gestures or words.
In the lair of the London club, instructions on each seat explain how to report incidents.
Already in 2021, three Manchester United supporters were suspended for similar offenses against Tottenham striker Son Heung-min.
