Police probe pre-match confrontation
A West Ham United fan was taken to hospital after being stabbed in a confrontation outside White Hart Lane before the 4-1 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur.
The injuries were understood to not be serious but a blade was recovered close to the scene.
The Metropolitan Police confirmed it was investigating. The two clubs were both aware of the incident and working together in an attempt to identify the culprit and what happened.
Matches between West Ham and Spurs have been marred by confrontations and abusive chanting. Fans were jailed in 2011 following a brawl between West Ham and Spurs supporters close to Upton Park in 2009.
In 2012, after a Tottenham fan was stabbed in Rome, West Ham supporters sang “Viva Lazio” and “Can we stab you every week?”. They also subjected Tottenham fans to chants of “Adolf Hitler, he’s coming for you”. Two West Ham fans were subsequently cautioned by police and one fan was banned from Upton Park for making Nazi-style salutes.
