Chelsea lodged an official complaint against last Sunday’s referee, Mark Clattenburg, for reportedly calling John Obi Mikel a “monkey” and Juan Mata a “Spanish twat”. Stamford Bridge currently has a banner for John Terry, who was found guilty of racially abusing Anton Ferdinand by an independent commission, which reads “Captain, Leader, Legend”.
Another of the banners set for the away end tonight reads: “CFC – Standing up to racism since last Sunday”
