TWO men have been arrested after objects were thrown at Antonio Rudiger in Chelsea's 2-0 win over Tottenham.

The FA launched an urgent investigation after the items - one of which appeared to be a lighter and another a bottle opener - reportedly hit the centre-back.

Attempts to identify the culprits have been made by The Metropolitan Police, who confirmed two men were taken into custody.

The incident occurred when Rudiger was near the away section - with Spurs fans becoming frustrated by the 2-0 deficit.

Rudiger alerted referee Paul Tierney to the incident but he decided not to take the matter further.

In reaction to the incident Thomas Tuchel said: “If it’s a new trend we should act together to stop it as soon as possible to protect the environment of this game and the atmosphere that’s absolutely unique in England.

“I love to have the fans close to the pitch.

“Not behind fences and not behind nets. It’s a brilliant atmosphere.

“In general, I’m not concerned. I enjoy this atmosphere, also in away stadiums, it’s brilliant.”

A Metropolitan Police spokesperson said: "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.

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

And after the match a Spurs spokesperson said: "With regards the Rudiger incident, we will work with Chelsea to review the footage and take any appropriate action."

It was not the only incident of fans launching missiles onto the pitch this weekend.

There were similar scenes at Goodison Park after Everton fans reacted angrily to Aston Villa celebrations.

Matty Cash and Lucas Digne were struck by bottles after fans were annoyed by their emotional displays after Emi Buendia headed his side in front.

And earlier this month Manchester City players were given the same treatment by Arsenal supporters after Rodri celebrated a last-minute winner in a rather over-the-top fashion. (UK Sun)
