Arsenal players warmed up with 'I can't breathe', 'Black Lives Matter', and 'Colour is not a crime' shirts ahead of a friendly match in preparation for the return of the Premier League next week.

The Gunners players showed their support for the worldwide protests and campaigning sparked by the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Mesut Ozil, David Luiz and Alexandre Lacazette were among the players to take a knee and carry the slogans at the Emirates Stadium, before Arsenal were beaten 3-2 by Championship side Brentford.

Arsenal travel to Manchester City on Wednesday June 17, the first day football resumes in England, and if they claim three points it could mean Liverpool win the title just four days later.

Jurgen Klopp's side hold a 25-point lead and need two wins to guarantee the silverware. However an Arsenal victory at the Etihad Stadium would mean the Reds becoming champions for the first time in 30 years if they beat Everton at Goodison on Sunday, June 21.
