The Football Association has confirmed it will investigate anti-Semitic chants made by West Ham fans during their match against Spurs on Sunday.

As reported by the Haringey Independent, visiting fans were heard singing songs about Hitler and chanting in support of Lazio.

The chanting comes days after a Tottenham fan was stabbed in Rome before Spurs’ Europa League clash with the Italian side.

After the game manager André Villas-Boas admitted he heard the chants, aimed at Tottenham's largely Jewish fan base, but said he did not want it to become the focus of the London derby.
