Liverpool Could Be Left To Celebrate Title Win In A Car Park
Liverpool players could end up celebrating the club's first Premier League title in the car park of Goodison Park a week on Sunday.
It's well known at this point but should Manchester City lose to Arsenal on Wednesday, in the second game of football's return in England, and Liverpool beat Everton in the Merseyside derby just four days later.
A title win would normally spark scenes of huge celebration but the Reds could be left to realise all their dreams in the car park of Goodison Park.
According to the Daily Mail, that's due to the fact that Covid-19 protocols will mean away sides not changing in the locker rooms in the stadium but in a temporary structure built in the car park at the Park End of the ground.
Liverpool players will be heading back to the structure at full time and could be doing so as champions, which would be the usual time to start spraying the champagne around.
The need for social distancing to be kept as much as possible even during football's return means that everything will be different to normal match prep.
Instead of a changing room each in the stadium it's likely that most grounds, especially older ones, will need a temporary solution with the home team using both home and away changing rooms.

At Old Trafford it's expected that corporate lounges could be used for pre match prep for the teams, as they'll be no one eating prawn sandwiches in them.
Crystal Palace are reportedly using portacabins as their alternative, Aston Villa could use the media lounge and Burnley have also installed a temporary structure by the existing dressing rooms.
Initially the police wanted to move the Merseyside derby to a neutral ground through fear that fans might congregate near the stadium and break social distancing rules.
However it was eventually agreed that all the games could be played at their original locations and the chances of fans going to Goodison Park are greatly reduced should City beat Arsenal on Wednesday.
If Klopp's side aren't named champions on Sunday then it could be at Anfield just three days later when they play Palace as they only need six more points to confirm themselves as champions.
When do you think Liverpool will be celebrating their title win? Let us know in the comments.
