Chelsea have vowed to ban any supporter found responsible for coin-throwing during Sunday's FA Cup fifth-round match against Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.
It appeared objects were thrown from the lower section of the Matthew Harding Stand as City celebrated David Faupala's equaliser after 37 minutes of the contest.
Referee Andre Marriner was later seen collecting three objects from the corner of the pitch. The first appeared to be a coin.
A Chelsea spokesman at half-time condemned the action and said if evidence can be found of who is responsible they would be banned from the stadium.
It was the second incident of coin-throwing in the FA Cup this weekend.
West Brom's Chris Brunt was struck by a coin thrown from the visiting supporters' section in his side's loss at Championship Reading on Saturday.
