There’s often a very thin line between what is and what isn’t acceptable when it comes to chants at football grounds.

While the majority of chants you’ll hear inside English football stadiums are a bit naughty but ultimately tongue-in-cheek and aren’t taken too seriously, there are others that cross that line and fall into the ‘offensive’ category.

Football clubs have done much work over the years to combat offensive chants but eradicating the problem is almost impossible. People will always think of new and inventive ways to be offensive, unfortunately.

Liverpool fans - and Everton supporters - had a problem with what Chelsea supporters were chanting inside Goodison Park on Saturday.

The game itself was a fairly drab 0-0 draw but Liverpool supporters heard what the travelling fans were chanting via their televisions - and they were not impressed.

What Chelsea fans were chanting v Everton

The Anfield Wrap tweeted: “Chelsea fans in early with “Feed the Scousers” at Goodison. Because poverty and not being able to feed your family at Christmas is the best kind of “football banter” isn’t it?”

This is what the chant sounds like

Although we don’t have footage of the Chelsea fans chanting, this is what it sounds like…

Manchester United supporters have chanted it over the years and were heard singing the same song in their 2-2 draw against Leicester City on Saturday evening.

Liverpool fans react to the chant

But Liverpool fans are in agreement that the chant shouldn’t be allowed while many families across the UK are struggling financially at this time of year.

Here are just some of the replies to the tweet…
