Chelsea vs Tottenham : Raheem Sterling is not punished by FA

Raheem Ster­ling, who appeared to throw a mis­sile back into the crowd dur­ing Chelsea’s 4–1 win over Tot­ten­ham on Mon­day night, has been told he will not face any fur­ther free agent action.

The Mail Sport exclu­sive­ly report­ed on Thurs­day that the FA will launch an inves­ti­ga­tion into his actions after images of the inci­dent were shared on the west Lon­don club’s Tik­Tok account.

How­ev­er, the Evening Stan­dard reports that after review­ing the footage, the FA are unlike­ly to press charges against the striker.

There was con­tro­ver­sy in the first half when Cole Palmer scored the Blues’ equal­iz­er from the penal­ty spot sec­onds after Cris­t­ian Romero was sent off for an ugly tack­le on Enzo Fernandes.

Palmer cel­e­brat­ed with a fin­ger to his lips in front of Spurs fans and was con­grat­u­lat­ed by sev­er­al of his team­mates, includ­ing Sterling.

Footage from the pitch shows Palmer’s leg struck by an object thrown from the home side of Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur’s stadium.

As the play­ers moved away to resume play, Ster­ling appeared to turn and throw the object into the crowd before run­ning off towards his own half.
