TRENT ALEXANDER-ARNOLD'S BOOT WITH THE WORDS 'BLACK LIVES MATTER' PRINTED ON THEM AS HE KNEELS AND GETS UP STORY: Everton and Liverpool continued the strong statement of support for worldwide protests against racism on Sunday (June 21) ahead of the Merseyside Derby as they resumed their Premier League campaigns behind closed doors following a more than three-month delay due to the COVID-19 health crisis.
All the players' names on the back of their shirts were replaced with the words 'Black Lives Matter' as the Premier League joined the international protest campaign sparked by the death of George Floyd in the United States.
The players, and referee Mike Dean, also took a knee as the opening whistle was blown, following a moment's silence before kickoff in memory of those who died in the pandemic.
