Lazio fans waved banners in support of Palestine during the match

During the first-half of the 0-0 Europa League draw in Rome, a section of the home support began singing "Juden Tottenham" to the followers of the north London club.

The chanting followed an attack on Spurs fans in a bar in Rome in the early hours of Thursday morning in which 11 people were injured, one of whom faces two weeks in hospital after being stabbed in the head and leg.

An FA spokesperson said: "We were saddened and alarmed to see reports of violent incidents prior to the game as well as anti-Semitic chants.

"The FA had a crowd control advisor present at the fixture who will provide an urgent report, which we will pass on to UEFA as a matter of priority."

Lazio may now be facing further sanctions from UEFA, having already been fined £32,500 because their fans made monkey chants at three Spurs players during the reverse fixture in September.

And two Italians, believed to be fans of AS Roma, have reportedly been charged with attempted murder following the bar attack.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
