West Bromwich Albion will investigate crowd disturbances that occurred during Friday’s 1-0 loss to Chelsea, who clinched the Premier League title with the victory, after media reports said that West Midlands Police arrested nine men for misconduct.

Several West Brom supporters are alleged to have ignored club warnings and illegally sold their home-end tickets to visiting Chelsea fans with clashes erupting after Michy Batsuhayi scored the title-clinching goal in the 82nd minute.

“We will also co-operate fully with police to help identify anyone clearly guilty of disorder offences during the disturbance.”

Goodman also confirmed that fans involved in the incident would be banned by the club regardless of police action.
