Tottenham, Chelsea and Southampton - amongst others - have been in the news recently for all the wrong reasons, whilst West Ham joined the ranks following a recent episode involving Liverpool striker Mo Salah at the Olympic Stadium.

The Minister for Sport and Civil Society Mims Davies has called for football supporters to be "self policing", following a spate of highly-publicised abusive incidents.

"The good news is that people have stopped being tolerant of intolerance," added Ms Davis.

And those events have prompted Ms Davies to appeal to football supporters the length and breadth of the country to begin to police themselves, by reporting any abusive incidents.

"This is coming from fans, this isn't necessarily coming from me.

The Sports minister's comments followed a call from West Ham's Michail Antonio to report any incidents of racism or unnecessary abuse, whilst also penalising clubs with poor records in this regard.

"I think there's an opportunity here with fans saying that was unacceptable behaviour and it was not going to be tolerated by them," said the 43-year-old Conservative MP for Eastleigh.
