Chelsea Football Club have yet to respond, but the video has caused outrage online.
Here is what Twitter users have said:
Disliking a footballer for playing for a certain club is fine. Disliking a certain player for being a Muslim is completely unacceptable. Once again Chelsea fans are showing their complete lack of humanity, class and self respect. Disgusting bunch of fans. https://t.co/XTGz0q7M7n

Chelsea 'fans' have been videoed singing a racial slur about Mohamed Salah being 'a bomber' today. He & many others have been subject to alarming abuse lately.

Absolutely f*cking disgraceful. Once again, a tiny minority of fans have let the whole club and fanbase down. What is the point, a 20 second video and sing song for a prison and ban sentence. Ashamed.

In contrast, here is a song sung by Liverpool fans about Salah. “If he’s good enough for me, he’s good enough for you. If he scores another few then I’ll be Muslim too”:
