A SECTION OF Arsenal fans are set to face an investigation from the police and the Football Association after tearing down hoardings at White Hart Lane following Wednesday’s League Cup victory over Tottenham.

The fans are accused of pulling down perimeter boards at the stadium as they celebrated the crucial derby cup win over their fierce North London rivals, while they are also accused of destroying banners attached to the upper tier.

The Metropolitan Police confirmed that 10 arrests were made relating to criminal damage, assault and public disorder offences. A spokesman for Arsenal insisted that the club will fully cooperate with any investigation: “We will work with Tottenham Hotspur and the authorities on this.”

Reports are also emerging that some Arsenal fans sang anti-Semitic chants on their way to the stadium, and it isn’t the first time such accusations have come to light.

Two goals from Arsenal’s French midfielder Mathieu Flamini won the game for Arsene Wenger’s side and they go on to play Sheffield Wednesday away in the next round.
