West Ham supporters are punished for anti-semitic gestures

In regional football news, 

And Singapore's Shaiful Esah will miss tomorrow's Suzuki Cup Group B clash against Indonesia due to a sprained ankle. 

The 26 year old leftback sustained the injury during the 3-0 win over Malaysia 2 nights ago. 

Shaiful is also likely to miss this Saturday's final group match against Laos. 

Meanwhile, fellow Lions 12 defender Irwan Shah is set to step into the leftback position. 

Alternatively, national coach Raddy Avramovic might decide to switch veteran Daniel Benett to his preferred leftback role while Irwan plays on the right instead. 

As group leaders, Singapore can qualify for the semi-finals should our Lions beat Indonesia. 

Kickoff is tomorrow at 6pm and you can catch it Live on Channel 5.

In English football news, 

2 West Ham United fans were arrested last night for their anti-Semitic gestures during Tottenham's 3-1 win at White Hart Lane on Sunday. 

One of the fans who's a season ticket holder, has been given a lifetime ban order by the east London club. 

The 2 supporters were cautioned for racially-aggravated public order offences, as they reportedly made Nazi-style salutes. 

5 other arrests, not directly linked to taunts at Spurs fans, were also made. 

Some of West Ham's fans are alleged to have mocked Tottenham supporters, who traditionally have strong ties with London's Jewish community.

Still on football, 

Barcelona defender Dani Alves will be sidelined for close to 3 weeks, after injuring his right thigh muscle during Sunday's 4-0 away victory over Levante.

Alves, who had just recovered from a similar injury in the left thigh, had to be substituted in the 14th minute. 

And the injury means he will likely miss the mid-December clash with Atletico Madrid, who are lying 2nd in the La Liga and just 3 points behind leaders, Barcelona.
