Arsenal vow to ban yob fan who threw bottle at Chelsea star Reece James and are trawling CCTV to find culprit

ARSENAL have vowed to find and ban the yob responsible for throwing a bottle at Chelsea star Reece James.

The England star ran to the corner flag after scoring in the 35th minute as the Blues cruised to a 2-0 victory over the hapless Gunners.


But the celebrations proved to be too much for one frustrated fan.

And they disgracefully threw a bottle from the stands on to the pitch at James.

Fortunately, the 21-year-old wasn't hurt in the incident.

Now Arsenal have confirmed they are looking into the incident and promised to ban the person responsible.

A club spokesman said: “We are currently investigating this incident using CCTV and our digital ticket database to identify who threw the bottle.

“The club condemns this behaviour and the culprit faces a ban from the Emirates.”

The Chelsea wing-back assisted Romelu Lukaku's debut goal with just 15 minutes on the clock, providing a pinpoint centre for the Belgian to convert.

And he added the second himself, when marker Kieran Tierney was dragged infield, leaving James space to set himself before slapping an emphatic finish past Bernd Leno.

James suffered a scare in the second-half, when he went down with an apparent head injury.

But he was able to carry on, helping his side to see out their win.
