Anti-racism charity Kick It Out has condemned racist abuse aimed at Tammy Abraham after Chelsea's Super Cup defeat by Liverpool in Istanbul.

Striker Abraham, 21, was targeted on social media after his side lost 5-4 on penalties after the match ended 2-2.



Former Everton striker Kevin Campbell tweeted: "Can someone please tell me why Tammy Abraham gets racially abused for missing a penalty?



One of those fans was banned for life for using "racially abusive language" towards Sterling.

In one of those, Chelsea suspended six fans for using "abusive language and threatening and aggressive behaviour" towards Manchester City and England player Raheem Sterling during a Premier League match at Stamford Bridge in December 2018.

It comes after there were four reported cases of racist abuse on the opening weekend of the EFL season.

Kick It Out also produced a report which was released in July which showed that reports of racist abuse increased by 43% last season, with 274 cases compared with 192 the previous season.
