While the players of the two clubs were gathered in the centre of the pitch to show their opposition to racism, the plane made its appearance.
An act in front of which the club of Burnley was quick to react. The club has condemned this action and has indicated that its authors “are not welcome at Turf Moore (ed: the club stadium)“. “We are fully behind the initiative Black Lives Matter to the Premier League“, he added in a statement posted on its website.

Manchester City ensures in the face of Burnley
This still will not be Wednesday that Liverpool will be crowned champion of England. Manchester City has extended a bit, the suspense, beating 5-0 Burnley. In the case of a counter-performance of the Citizens, the Reds would have had the way free during the reception of the Crystal Palace and ran straight to their 30th title. But City had not made the area facing Burnley, with doubled Phil Foden and Riyad Mahrez, as well as a goal from David Silva. The only downside for Pep Guardiola: the exit on injury of Sergio Agüero before half-time.
