A video circulating on social media shows one Burnley fan making what appears to be a Nazi salute towards Spurs fans. The north London club is known to have a strong Jewish following.

It is not known at this stage if that man was one of the three arrested.

Both Burnley Football Club and Tottenham Hotspur’s official Twitter accounts tweeted after the match that a number of away supporters had been arrested following discriminatory gestures.
