Chelsea ban three fans, hunt three more for abusive Salah chants

London - Chelsea say they have banned three fans for their part in an abusive video directed at striker Mohamed Salah from Premier League rivals Liverpool.

  Six men were seen on a video posted on social media on Thursday abusing Salah, calling the Egypt international a "bomber".

Both clubs roundly condemned the video on Thursday, each issuing a statement in which they pledged to work together to find the people responsible.
Chelsea said they had stopped three fans at the gates for their Europa League clash with Slavia Prague in the Czech Republic on Thursday.
Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud said the whole Chelsea side were disgusted at the video.
"I think these people shouldn't belong to Chelsea," the Frenchman said.
"I think the club and everybody condemns these kind of things, and we are 100 per cent behind Mo Salah. I think nowadays it shouldn't happen."
Salah played 13 times for Chelsea before joining Roma, and eventually signing for Liverpool in the summer of 2017.
Leaders Liverpool host Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday.
