Two arrests after objects thrown at Chelsea’s Rudiger

Two men have been arrested after objects were thrown at Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger from the away end at Stamford Bridge during the Premier League match against Tottenham on Sunday.

Rudiger was hit during the Blues’ 2-0 Premier League victory at Stamford Bridge, earned thanks to second-half goals from Hakim Ziyech and Thiago Silva.

The match was paused as Rudiger collected and removed items from the pitch that were aimed at him.

“Two men have been arrested on suspicion of throwing objects from the stands during the Chelsea versus Tottenham Hotspur match at Stamford Bridge. They have been taken into custody,” a Metropolitan Police spokesperson told Sky Sports News:

“Enquiries, in conjunction with Chelsea FC and Tottenham Hotspur FC, are ongoing to identify anyone else involved in throwing objects during the match.”

Tottenham have said they will work with Chelsea to review the footage and take appropriate action.
