West Ham boss urges end to anti-semitic chanting
West Ham boss Allardyce was critical of a small minority of Hammers fans who chanted anti-Semitic songs during the 3-1 defeat at White Hart Lane in November but remains hopeful the situation will not reoccur on Monday night. "I hope there's nothing untoward that happens in terms of chanting," he said.
"Like everybody else we want to try to reduce it to its bare minimum. We'd like to cut it out completely but I don't think that's ever going to be the case when people get involved in emotional situations.
"But if we spot it we've got to deal with it and hopefully there won't be any."
