Aston Villa and Leicester City players paid tribute to Arthur Labinjo-Hughes in the sixth minute of Sunday's Premier League clash at Villa Park.
Football supporters across the country have paid tribute to six-year-old Labinjo-Hughes, who was tragically killed by his father and stepmother after suffering a devastating campaign of abuse.
On Sunday afternoon, both sets of players and supporters, as well as Steven Gerrard and Brendan Rodgers, paused the game for a minute's applause in memory of Labinjo-Hughes.
Arthur was killed on June 16, 2020, after sustaining an 'unsurvivable head injury' at the hands of stepmother Emma Tustin, 32, in their home in Solihull.
After his murder, he was found to have a total of 130 injuries.
Tustin has been jailed for life with a minimum term of 29 years while Arthur's father, Thomas Hughes, was sentenced to 21 years for manslaughter.
Julian Knight, who is the Conservative MP for Solihull, says that he wants a review into the sentences.
"Solihull still has collective heartbreak over the murder of young Arthur Labinjo-Hughes," he said. "I share the view that the sentences these monsters have been given are just not enough.
"I will be referring them for review by the Attorney General under the Unduly Lenient Sentence scheme."
