PLAYERS ON PITCH BEFORE KICKOFF STORY: Premier League players, including champions Manchester City, took a knee before kickoff in support of the "Black Lives Matter" movement as the English season restarted on Wednesday (June 17).

The league returned after a 100-day hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the teams and match officials sent out a strong statement of support for the worldwide protests against racism.

All of the players also had "Black Lives Matter" on the back of their shirts instead of their names which will be a feature for the first 12 matches of the restart.
