Fans were warned three times about racist behaviour at Tottenham's Premier League match against Chelsea.

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger appeared to report racist chanting from Spurs fans in about the 63rd minute.

Spurs forward Heung-min Son was sent off for violent conduct against Rudiger shortly beforehand.

Later, in the 80th minute, referee Anthony Taylor brought both sides' captains together after Rudiger gestured that he was continuing to be abused.
