This comes after the Chelsea defender was allegedly racially abused at Tottenham in the 2-0 London derby win.

On Sunday, Frank Lampard mastermind a convincing 2-0 win over former manager Jose Mourinho when Tottenham hosted Chelsea. The two biggest talking points after that game were Heung-Min Son's red card and the alleged racial abuse Anthony Rudiger suffered.

After the game, the Special One poked fun at the German center-back as he had been involved in Son's sending off. The South Korean sensation was given his marching order after kicking out at the Blues defender.

Mourinho believes that Rudiger made too much out of that incident which led to the red card, sarcastically joking that Son had left him with broken ribs. These remarks were brought to the Chelsea boss' attention and he did not shy away from slamming the Portuguese tactician.

The Englishman slammed Jose's comment as disappointing, arguing that his former manager's decision to question Rudiger's integrity immediately after he was racially abused wasn't the right thing.

"I think to question his integrity in that time is disappointing," Lampard said, as per the Daily Mail.

"I think pretty universally, certainly what I heard on the commentary and post-match reflection is that the Son incident was a red card.

"Now I said it after the game, it wasn't a brutal red card, but it was an instinctive one that warrants a red card in the modern day. VAR took a couple of minutes, so there was no excuse for the referee not seeing it real, or whatever, the VAR saw it perfectly.

"So it's pretty clear that was the case. I wouldn't question Toni's integrity on that. If it becomes a question of people standing up or falling down in the Premier League, I think there were a couple of incidents in the last 15 minutes of the game where Tottenham players were going over in the box attempting to win a penalty.

"So we can open up that debate, not just the red card but on mini incidents across many games. I do defend Toni firmly on it."

After the incident with Son, Rudiger appeared to be targeted by the home fans. This is when the alleged racist abuse occurred. Tottenham quickly began an investigation into this case and six arrests were made but none were related to the incident involving the Chelsea center-back.
