Arsenal and Crystal Palace players got on their knees for their Premier League game on Friday night, despite deciding to only perform the gesture at ‘key moments’.

As Sports post predicted on Tuesday, the pre-match gesture will no longer take place before every game this season, but Eagles and Gunners players have chosen to show their commitment to anti-discrimination before the campaign’s first game.

Top players are set to take to their knees during the opening round of matches that started with Palace v Arsenal, then again on Boxing Day, the FA Cup and League Cup finals, the last day of the season and weeks in which the No The Room For Racism campaign is active in October and November.
