Even from a thousand miles away, the hatred Tottenham fans have for Chelsea can be felt. The rivalry between the two clubs have become intense since last season’s ‘Battle of the Bridge’, as Chelsea came from 2 goals down to kill Tottenham’s hope of winning the league.
A Tottenham Hotspur fan Michael Voller, 23, was punched in the face, causing a broken cheek-bone, eye-socket and skull, after Chelsea beat Spurs in the FA Cup semifinal.
The Tottenham Hotspur fan was left with serious injuries after an unprovoked attack by a fellow Spurs supporter who may have mistaken him for a Chelsea fan, police said.
Mr Voller has since been discharged from hospital but police said there is concern about permanent damage to his eyesight.
The Metropolitan Police said the incident took place outside the Moore Spice Restaurant on Engineers Way at around 7.30pm, when the victim was identified and targeted by another group of Tottenham fans walking in the opposite direction.
Officers have released images of the injuries suffered by the former Tottenham Hotspur gardener as they appeal for help identifying the suspect
