Club announcement

Supporter information: Tottenham Hotspur (h)

Emirates Stadium

We’re all looking forward to our Carabao Cup quarter-final against Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday evening.

This fixture always generates an exciting and passionate atmosphere, however we recently saw incidents where a small minority of fans have behaved unacceptably and unlawfully.

We appeal to both sets of supporters to get behind their team tomorrow in positive and respectful ways without any discriminatory behaviour.

If you witness any form of offensive chanting or discriminatory behaviour at the game, you can report it to a matchday steward or use our ‘See Something, Say Something’ service by texting FOUL to 67777 together with a description of the incident and location.
