Saturday’s 4-0 win over Burnley was overshadowed by a traveling support that interrupted the minute’s applause.

Chelsea’s Russian owner, Abramovich, is selling amid fears he will have his assets frozen or even confiscated by the Government.

The Blues travel to Norwich on Thursday and Dan Silver, a spokesman for Chelsea Supporters’ Trust, said: “CST has been steadfast in supporting the Ukrainian people.

“The naming of Mr Abramovich at the time was clearly inappropriate.

“There is a time and a place for it.

“From the 1st to the 90th minute in the game it was fine but not in a minute marked as gratitude to the people of Ukraine.

“With Norwich, we expect supporters to absorb the manager’s comments and respect the moment of applause or silence.”

Blues coach Thomas Tuchel added: “We need our fans to commit to this minute of applause.

“We do it for the people of Ukraine and don’t have a second opinion.”

CST is looking to donate supplies or money to Ukraine and is also organizing a mass sleepover at Stamford Bridge on March 26 to support veterans of the force.

Silver added: “We’ve done a lot of work with the local council regarding food banking and cash raising.”
