Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has condemned Chelsea fans for an offensive chant aimed at West Ham.

Chelsea supporters reportedly sang about Lampard scoring against ‘the pikeys’.

‘Pikey’ is a slang term used in a derogatory way aimed at the gypsy or traveller community.

Lampard revealed after the game that he didn’t hear the song and urged fans to quit offensive chants.

Lampard said: “I didn’t hear the song in question and if there’s a song that has offensive words I don’t want to hear that.

“That’s me saying that as a big Chelsea man who really appreciates the support and had it over the years. The support today was incredible.

“We don’t want songs with offensive words.

“The club is clear with the work we do off the pitch about anything that’s offensive or prejudiced and we’ve made a big mark on that.”

Meanwhile, Lampard has acknowledged that tough decisions would have to be made in the coming weeks over what the squad will look like.

“I wouldn’t say I’ve made decisions yet in terms of selection for those early games or what the squad looks like because that’s a line and I don’t want to draw that line just yet,” Lampard claimed.

“There’s not a player who hasn’t pushed themselves and shown me everything but these are decisions I have to make. They’re not absolutely clear decisions but I’ll make them in due course.”
