Premier League: Liverpool slam own fans for homophobic chants against Chelsea-Liverpool has been vocal against their fans for acting being involved in alleged homophobic chanting at Anfield this season. They issued a statement to point out the unnecessary gestures and acts of poor conduct by a few of their supporters during the 1-1 draw against Chelsea.

The Merseyside outfit has issued a statement for the second time in two weeks with the club only criticising their own fans who had travelled during their Premier League season opener against Norwich.

A few travelling Reds fans were heard shouting ‘Chelsea rent boy’ during Pools’ season opener with the chants aimed at midfielder Billy Gilmour who is on loan at Norwich from the Champions League winners.

The Reds boss Jurgen Klopp also expressed his opinion on the fans’ chants adding who he does not want to hear it anymore. However, the Germans’ voice didn’t seem to affect the Liverpool fans with the Merseyside supports pulling off the stooping down to the same level of acts at Anfield against Chelsea.

Liverpool posted a statement on their official website stating: “Liverpool FC is disappointed by reports that a small section of our supporters were heard singing offensive songs during Saturday’s fixture with Chelsea at Anfield. 

“The club strongly condemns these actions and will be investigating all reported allegations of abusive and/or discriminatory behaviour with the relevant authorities to identify perpetrators.

“The club would like to remind its fans of its code of conduct, which clearly outlines what it expects from all supporters visiting Anfield.”
