Chelsea fan probed over racist remarks against Raheem Sterling
Video circulated on social media during Saturday's Premier League match between the clubs at Stamford Bridge that appeared to show a Chelsea fan directing a racial slur at Sterling as the England worldwide retrieved the ball from the byline.
The Professional Footballers' Association was critical of media's portrayal of Sterling, saying the England global and former Liverpool player was often singled out.
A Chelsea spokesman said: "Our investigations into this matter are ongoing".
"If there is evidence of ticket-holders taking part in any racist behavior, the club will issue severe sanctions, including bans. We will also fully support any criminal prosecutions".
Meanwhile, Gary Neville, who worked with Sterling during his time as assistant to former England boss Roy Hodgson, said the abuse at Chelsea is far from the first time the City man has borne the brunt of vitriolic public criticism.
It's a shame and disgraceful, if that is the case, if Raheem did suffer abuse at Stamford Bridge.
One of the suspended Chelsea supporters has admitted directing abuse at Sterling but said the vitriol was "not racist in nature".
In many respects, I much prefer the overt racism now to the racism we went through in the last 10 years whereby we are being told that it doesn't exist so, therefore, let's get on with it.
Earlier this month, Arsenal's Gabonese star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also became a victim of racism in football.
He finished the post with: "So for all the newspapers that don't understand why people are racist in this day and age all I have to say is have a second thought about fair publicity an (d) give all players an equal chance".
