- Raheem Sterling accused in 4-1 win over Spurs
- Accused of throwing missile at Spurs fans
- FA clear winger in investigation
WHAT HAPPENED? The accusation came after celebrations in front of home supporters following Chelsea’s thrilling 4-1 Premier League victory against their London rivals on Monday, when they equalised. Cole Palmer placed his finger to his lips after he tucked in a penalty. Shortly after, something seemed to be thrown from the crowd at Chelsea players, hitting Palmer before supposedly being tossed back by Raheem Sterling. However, match officials were unable to witness anything during the incident. After reviewing the situation, the FA has concluded that the 28-year-old does not need to face charges as per The Sun.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: The incident took place during a chaotic game between Chelsea and nine-men Tottenham. Apart from red cards for Spurs duo Cristian Romero and Destiny Udogie, referee Michael Oliver oversaw five disallowed goals and a handful of VAR disputes.
WHAT NEXT? Chelsea will once again face off against league leaders, this time, Manchester City on Sunday, November 12.
