The game in which Liverpool might protect the Premier League title could be held at a neutral venue, states the national lead for football policing.

They consist of the Merseyside derby as well as Manchester City v Liverpool.

Roberts said conversations with the Premier League had actually been “positive” with a “shared focus on the concern of public health”.

The Premier League is set to restart on 17 June, based on government approval.

The fixtures set to be transferred to neutral places are:

” We have actually reached an agreement that stabilizes the needs of football, while likewise minimizing the need on policing,” stated Roberts.

” Most of staying matches will be played, at home and away as scheduled, with a little number of fixtures occurring at neutral locations, which, contrary to some reports, have yet to be agreed.

” The views and contract of forces which host Premier League clubs have actually been sought and where there were concerns, the Premier League has actually been helpful in supplying flexibility in arranging alternative locations where asked for.

” This strategy will be kept continually under review to ensure public health and security and a key part of this is for advocates to continue to respect the social distancing standards, and not to go to or collect outside the stadiums.”

Liverpool, chasing their very first title for 30 years, lead the Premier League table by 25 points with nine games remaining,
