West Ham beat Chelsea 1-0 in the Premier League on Saturday

Police are investigating allegations of homophobic chanting by West Ham fans at Chelsea on Saturday.

Metropolitan Police officers were contacted on social media to report chanting by away fans directed at Chelsea fans at Stamford Bridge.

The force said in a statement on Monday that “enquiries are ongoing” but no arrests have been made.

Anti-discrimination charity Kick It Out has also called on the Football Association to investigate.

Chelsea Supporters’ Trust said it noted “with dismay the continuous homophobic chanting by visiting West Ham fans”.

West Ham LGBT+ Supporters’ Group, Pride of Irons, says Kick It Out have made clear these chants were homophobic.
