All four games of the Premier League’s ‘Project Restart’ have been preceded by players and staff taking a knee, while Black Lives Matter will replace names on the back of shirts for all matches this weekend.

Rashford has made waves for his power off the field this week with a campaign to provide vulnerable children with food vouchers forcing a British government U-turn.

The England international made his first appearance since January after recovering from a long-term back injury.
