Spurs game passes without incident

Tottenham fans defied police instructions by chanting “Yid army” during their 3-0 Premier League defeat against West Ham, the Press Association report.

Both sets of fans had been warned pre-match that they could face arrest if they were involved in any anti-Semitic chanting.

Despite the warning, Tottenham fans sang “Yid army” and “We’ll sing what we want” before and during the game.

There was a strong police presence at the game but no sign of any mass arrest to either set of fans.

Last season in the corresponding fixture, a small section of West Ham fans shocked the football world by using anti-Semitic language.

But after pleas from owners David Sullivan and David Gold, as well as manager Sam Allardyce, there was no such chanting from the away end.

Information from the Press Association was used in this report.
