Chelsea will take the strongest possible action against anyone caught chanting "Anton Ferdinand, you know what you are" during their FA Cup clash at QPR.

The Blues will ban such supporters from Stamford Bridge, even if they avoid arrest or ejection for singing the song at Loftus Road on Saturday.

Although extra police officers have been laid on for the west London derby, they have not been issued with any specific guidance on whether action should be taken over the abusive chant. QPR could instruct their stewards to eject fans caught singing the song but they have declined to comment on whether they planned to do so.
