Liverpool Fans Warned To Stay Off The Pitch After Wolves Title Decider

Jurgen Klopp has told Liverpool fans that they shouldn't invade the pitch this weekend, if they manage to win the Premier League title, after the ugly scenes at Everton on Thursday night.

Liverpool are attempting to overturn the odds on Sunday when they face Wolves in the final day of the season, in an attempt to keep their unreal quadruple hopes alive.

Whilst a win over Wolves wouldn't exactly be a surprise, they need Manchester City to drop points to Aston Villa, and that would be a shock.

Of course if the Reds do manage to win their second league title in three years it would be a huge moment for fans, who weren't able to witness the first one in 2020, thanks to Covid regulations.

However, fans who are considering running on the pitch at full time have been told by Klopp not to do it, in the wake of some awful scenes in recent days.

"It could have been dangerous. I’m not sure how you avoid that," the German said at his press conference, when talking about the incident involving Patrick Vieira on Thursday.

"I don’t want to judge. I understand emotions but for the other team it’s massively uncomfortable.

"I really hope we learn from that. We should make sure absolutely nothing happens. People threaten themselves by jumping over.

"We can celebrate things without threatening ourselves and the opponent."

It wasn't just at Everton where things turned nasty on Thursday, with Swindon Town players also attacked after their League Two play off game.

The visitors lost to Port Vale on penalties and fans ran on the pitch to celebrate, but there was an altercation between fans and players, as the latter tried to head for the changing rooms.

There was also the sight of a Nottingham Forest fan headbutting Sheffield United striker Billy Sharp, after Steve Cooper's side made the Championship playoff final, with their own penalty shootout win.

Everton's pitch invasion was preceded by their comeback win over Crystal Palace, the first time in Premier League history they'd won from 2-0 down at half time, and secured their place in the top tier.

Klopp congratulated the Toffees on staying up and then warned his own team that Palace's first half performance was proof clubs with 'nothing' to play for were still trying.

"Congrats by the ay for Everton for staying in the league. But [Crystal Palace] are a good example that everyone plays to win.

"Aston Villa will play to win. It is a difficult place to go [Manchester City]. I am not concerned about that game. It’s disrespectful to Wolves. They will come here and want to win.’

"If I could play a game to help Dortmund or Mainz it would mean for me an extra motivation.

"But I’m not playing and Stevie isn’t playing. It is a shame that Stevie is not playing more than I am not playing.

"We’re all human beings. Stevie will take it seriously without me calling him or whatever. Probably the rest of the club has done already, but I didn’t."
