Sam Allardyce is confident the West Ham fans who chanted anti-Semitic abuse at their Tottenham counterparts will be rooted out and banned for life.

A section of West Ham fans appeared to mock the stabbing of a Spurs fan in Rome on Sunday during the Hammers' 3-1 defeat at White Hart Lane. A group of away fans also appeared to mock Jews being gassed during the Holocaust, while chanting the name of Adolf Hitler - referring to Tottenham fans' connection with the Jewish community

When asked if supporters found guilty of such abuse should be banned for life, the West Ham boss told a press conference: "Yes. It's a small minority but at the end of the day a small minority can make themselves heard at football matches if they really want to and we must deal with it."
