More West Ham, Chelsea and Spurs fans have been arrested for racist and abusive chanting than any other Premier League club in the last ten years.

Figures on the government website show that since the 2004/5 season, there have been 21 arrests made for racist and abusive chanting involving West Ham fans, more than any other club.
