I have a problem where Google ignores my set canonical tag.

If I use the "URL inspection" tool in the new Google search console I can see that on the indexed page they could not find any "User-declared canonical".

But when I run the Live test they can. Please see the attached images.

Any ideas why this is the case?

This is the link I've tested:

    Try to remove id="canonical-url" and place the link rel canonical at the beginning of the header section. – Emirodgar Oct 5 '18 at 10:14
