Liverpool and Everton fans caused controversy by chanting over the national anthem, God Save the King, during recent Premier League matches. The league had suggested clubs play the anthem to coincide with the coronation of King Charles III.
Liverpool fans were vocal in their opposition when the anthem was played before their match against Brentford, while Everton supporters did the same at the Amex Stadium before their game against Brighton. Everton won 3-0 in their fight to avoid relegation. Opinion is divided over the actions of Liverpool fans, with some seeing it as a symbol of the city's distrust of the establishment.
