Haringey CID launched an investigation after they were made aware of the tweets, which were of an anti-Semitic nature and made reference to Hitler and the gas chambers.

A 24-year-old man was arrested at his home address in Croydon on Thursday, 12 December on suspicion of inciting racial hatred and was taken into custody at a south London police station

A 22-year-old man was arrested on the same day at his home address in Wiltshire on suspicion of inciting racial hatred and was taken into custody at a local police station.

Previously, as part of the same investigation, on 5 December a 48-year-old man was arrested at his home address in Canning Town by Haringey officers on suspicion of inciting racial hatred, and was taken into custody at a north London police station.

All three men have now been bailed to a date in late January pending further enquiries.

In a separate investigation that also dealt with anti-Semitic tweets relating to the same match, a 55-year-old man from Hemel Hempstead was arrested and cautioned on 28 November for malicious communications.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
