Premier League: Chelsea condemn offensive chants during the game against Liverpool

Chants were also directed at former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher.

Chelsea condemned offensive chanting from home supporters around Stamford Bridge during Liverpool’s goalless draw against Liverpool.

Part of the crowd near the dugout could be heard during the second half taunting visiting supporters, relating to the 1989 Hillsborough disaster. There were also chants directed at former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher, who was in attendance as part of the Sky Sports broadcast team. These chants were related to an incident in 2018 where he was filmed spitting at a passing car.
