Meanwhile, Liverpool and Tottenham observed a minute’s silence ahead of their Champions League games on Tuesday.

Now the Premier League has confirmed how it will ask its 20 clubs to show their respect this weekend, following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

For each game between Friday 16th and Sunday 18th September, there will be a minute of applause observed at the 70th minute of each game to represent the late Queen’s 70 years on the throne.

The game will continue throughout the tribute, as fans pay their respects from the 70th to the 71st minute of the match.

Each Premier League game will also observe a minute’s silence before kick-off.

Then the national anthem, God Save the King, will be sung before the game begins.

Players will head straight to the center circle after exiting the tunnel in preparation for completing pre-game tributes.

This means that there will be no handshakes between the teams.

Meanwhile, players and officials will also wear black armbands and all Premier League ‘furniture’ and music will not be used as normal before a regular game.
