In the build-up to the latest set of domestic games, Premier League managers put the focus on social media companies to police abuse dished out to players online. The vile racist abuse on social media continued today. Representatives of Twitter are also planning to meet with officials at Manchester United to discuss the racial abuse aimed at Pogba following his penalty miss against Wolves on Monday night. Following the match, which saw Palace win following a stoppage-time goal from defender Patrick Van Aanholt, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hit out at the abuse directed towards Rashford. When contacted by the PA news agency on Saturday evening, Twitter firmly reiterated the statements of last week, with racist behaviour having no place on the social media platform. The company says a series of accounts have been permanently suspended over the abuse directed towards footballers and insisted it will take robust action on any account which violates its rules..

Chelsea condemn Abraham abuse
Chelsea News. Social media giant Twitter has agreed to discuss racist abuse with football anti-discrimination group Kick It Out for the first time. It comes after Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham was targeted online after missing the decisive penalty in Chelsea's penalty shootout defeat to Liverpool in the Super Cup final on Wednesday night. Kick It Out subsequently sent a "call to action" to social media platforms including Twitter, asking what was being done to "tackle this insidious problem". Hopefully there will be some actions coming out of those conversations.

Kick It Out has been plunged into fresh turmoil following the resignation of two of its longest-serving trustees in Crooks and Onwere, something that has exposed deep divisions within the organisation about how best to combat the rise in racist abuse of black players, including on social media. Matters came to a head during the recruitment of a replacement for founding chairman Lord Ouseley , who himself quit earlier this year after a quarter of a century in charge.
