Chelsea has revealed that they have refused access to fans of Manchester United and kicked others from Stamford Bridge for “unacceptable homophobic chants” at Monday night’s Premier League match.
It is not clear what was said by the out fans, but Chelsea vowed to ban those involved from future games at Stamford Bridge.
A statement issued by the Blues on Tuesday evening said: ‘During the game last night (Monday), a large group of supporters from Manchester United made unacceptable homophobic chants.

“A number of these out supporters were prevented from entering the stadium and others were ejected during the match.
“This behavior is not tolerated at Chelsea Football Club. Those supporters will no longer attend competitions at Stamford Bridge, and in collaboration with Manchester United we have passed on the details of those supporters so that they can take appropriate action. “
Earlier on Monday, it appeared that the Football Association reportedly will not start an investigation into alleged homophobic singing by fans of United.
According to Sky Sports News, the FA “takes the allegations extremely seriously and remains in regular, ongoing discussions with the police, Kick It Out and Crown Prosecution Service about which language is considered discriminatory.”
United left Stamford Bridge with all three points thanks to goals from Anthony Martial and Harry Maguire.

It comes after West Ham sentenced their own fans for singing homophobic songs during their Premier League clash in Chelsea in December.
Hammers’ LGBT fan group Pride of Irons claimed supporters were singing “Chelsea Rent Boys” on Stamford Bridge – and the Chelsea Supporters Trust agreed it was “continuous.”
Stonewall’s sports director Robbie de Santos told Sky Sports News: “[With] this particular song many people say they don’t understand what is meant by the song.
“That doesn’t make it apologetic, but it shows that some of the solutions to stop this singing is to make sure people understand what the implications of the word rent boy actually mean.”
