Chelsea could’ve landed their own player in a spot of bother
Raheem Sterling could be facing an FA ban in relation to a video Chelsea posted to their own TikTok account.
The video appeared during the Blues’ 4-1 win against London rivals Spurs on Monday night as they came from a goal behind to inflict a first defeat of the season on Ange Postecoglou’s side.
Sterling had a goal ruled out in the first half for a handball but did play the full 90 minutes and assist the first of Nicolas Jackson’s three goals.
But Sterling could be in trouble for an incident that occurred shortly after Chelsea’s equaliser.
As he and his teammates celebrated Cole Palmer’s penalty, a missile was thrown towards Sterling.
After the celebrations died down, the England international can the be spotted bending down to pick up and throw the missile back.
An FA spokesperson confirmed to the Daily Mail that they are investigating the ongoing incident.
Last season, Richarlison received a one-match ban and was fined £25,000 for throwing a lit flare into the stands during his time at Everton.
