The Merseyside County Police, on whose territory the Liverpool (Anfield) and Everton (Goodison Park) stadiums are located, declared themselves today prepared to supervise the matches played by these two teams when the Premier League resumes from 17 June.
The Merseyside police statement comes a day after reports that the national police body wants several games to be played on neutral ground, including Everton-Liverpool and Liverpool-Crystal Palace, to prevent a large concentration of fans outside the stadiums. The ‘reds’ are 6 points away from achieving their first league title since 1990 and in those two games they would sing the tune.
“We see no objection to the Everton and Liverpool matches being played in their stadiums,” Merseyside police said in their statement.
In this way Liverpool could celebrate the title at Anfield. Even if it were not, his coach, Jürgen Klopp, assures: “Who cares, it will be an absolutely exceptional day in my life.”
