Black Lives Matter: Tottenham and Man Utd players take a knee at kick-off

June 19, 2020

Tottenham and Manchester United players took a knee at kick-off as Premier League teams continued to show their support for the Black Lives Matter movement.

The players and match officials followed the example set by Aston Villa, Sheffield United, Manchester City and Arsenal on Wednesday by taking a knee for around 10 seconds following referee Jonathan Moss's opening whistle.

As will be the case across the Premier League, the players had their names replaced by 'Black Lives Matter' on their shirts.

The game ended in a 1-1 draw, Bruno Fernandes' 81st-minute penalty cancelling out Steven Bergwijn's first-half strike.

Earlier on Friday, Norwich and Southampton also took a knee at kick-off in their game at Carrow Road.

Saints scored three second-half goals to pile the pressure on Norwich who suffered their fourth defeat in five games.

Danny Ings, Stuart Armstrong and Nathan Redmond all got on the scoresheet in the 3-0 win to lift the visitors up to 13th in the Premier League.
