Premier League clubs pay tribute to Queen Elizabeth II during gameweek 8

Premier League clubs paid tribute to the queen over the weekend.


The Queen died peacefully on Thursday, September 8th at her Scottish estate, where she had spent much of the summer.

Following the queen’s death, last weekend’s Premier League games were postponed.

However, football returned this weekend and Premier League sides paid tribute to HM Queen Elizabeth II.

There was a minute’s silence before each Premier League game over the weekend and a minute’s applause in the 70th minute of each match – celebrating the Queen’s 70-year reign.

Manchester United vs Leeds, Chelsea vs Liverpool and Crystal Palace vs Brighton were all postponed due to policing issues.

Here is how each club that played this past weekend paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth II:

Nottingham Forest vs Fulham

Aston Villa vs Southampton

Wolves vs Manchester City

Newcastle vs Bournemouth

Tottenham vs Leicester City

Brentford vs Arsenal

Everton vs West Ham
