Chelsea have followed Liverpool’s lead in taking a knee to show solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement amid protests against the death of George Floyd.

Liverpool have released a photograph of their first-team squad taking the knee in a show of solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.

The Reds’ backing of the movement comes after a sixth day of protests in the United States over the death of American citizen George Floyd.

Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta tweeted a photo of the squad taking a knee at Cobham on Tuesday.

Along with the photo, Azpilicueta wrote: “Enough is enough. We are all HUMANS. Together we are stronger. #BlackLivesMatter”.

Chelsea’s stance followed on from the Liverpool squad taking a knee at Anfield on Monday to stand by the Black Lives Matter movement following Mr Floyd’s death last week.

Unrest began after a video was released showing Mr Floyd falling unconscious as a white police officer kneeled on his neck for at least eight minutes while arresting him in Minneapolis.
