CHELSEA MANAGER FRANK Lampard confirmed Antonio Rudiger and captain Cesar Azpilicueta discussed the alleged racist abuse by Tottenham fans towards the former with Premier League officials after Sunday’s match.
The Blues ran out 2-0 winners at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but the contest was marred by an incident in the second half.
Spurs’ Son Heung-min was sent off for kicking out at Rudiger and the German reported to Azpilicueta that he had been targeted by racist chants soon after.
Lampard subsequently confirmed the pair raised the issue with Premier League officials after the fixture, while Spurs have launched their own investigation.
“My understanding is that there was a racist comment, gesture or whatever that may be,” Lampard told Sky Sports.

“I’ve not spoken to Toni about it, but I know Cesar was there as well and now they’re speaking to the officials, as they should do afterwards.
“From our point of view, whether here or at Stamford Bridge, we want the right procedure in place, so we’ll leave that to them [the authorities] to get it sorted.”
