Chelsea have announced they will investigate claims that Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling was racially abused during the Blues' 2-0 win over the reigning champions.

The claims arose once photos and videos surfaced on social media appearing to show a fan shouting racist remarks aimed towards Sterling whilst he was fetching the ball after the ball had gone out of play.

The loss for City also means that they now drop down to second place following Liverpool's comfortable 4-0 away win over Bournemouth, with the Reds now leapfrogging the Manchester club leaving them sat one point ahead of them at the top of the table. 

It still isn't known what was said in the incident, however the club have revealed that they will investigate the matter further.

The report states that BT Sport - who were broadcasting the match - have agreed to cooperate and send over any match footage which may help the investigation in order to help get a clearer idea on what was shouted towards and to decide on appropriate actions.

We will investigate the matter and take the strongest possible action where necessary."

The incident threatens to overshadow what was a great night for Chelsea football club.
