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.

Jurgen Klopp not focused on records despite Liverpool return to winning ways

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insisted breaking records is not the club’s target this season after a 2-0 victory over Aston Villa took them a step closer to more landmarks. Sadio Mane’s sixth goal in as many games against Villa and a maiden Premier League strike from teenager Curtis Jones, who signed a new five-year contract on Saturday, came in the final quarter of a laboured win for the new champions over their relegation-threatened visitors. It put them within 11 points of equalling Manchester City’s 100-point tally for a season while also bringing up their 17th successive home league win this season and 24th in a row in total.

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is expected to return to the starting line-up to face Crystal Palace on Wednesday. The Egypt international was an unused substitute for Sunday’s goalless Merseyside derby draw, having missed the team’s warm-up game the previous week. Left-back Andy Robertson is also set to return after missing the game at Goodison Park, which is timely as stand-in James Milner has been ruled out with a hamstring injury, while defender Joel Matip is sidelined with a toe problem.
