Premier League Spotted Doing Trophy Rehearsals At Anfield Ahead Of Final Day
| Last updated
The Premier League conducted their usual pre-game trophy rehearsals ahead of today's final game of the 2021/22 campaign – and excitement is building online after images emerged from Anfield.
It will be a dramatic finale to the title race on Sunday afternoon.
Champions League finalists Liverpool are relying on club legend Steven Gerrard to do them a favour when 14th place Aston Villa take on league leaders Manchester City at the Etihad.
Jurgen Klopp's side, meanwhile, will host Wolves as they sit one point behind the Citizens with 37 games played.
The final preparations for Sunday's title decider are well underway and on Saturday night, ahead of Liverpool's clash against Bruno Lage's side, images from Anfield got people talking.

Despite trophy rehearsals being a regular occurrence whenever a title race comes down to the final day, fans continued to speculate online.
One said: "Hmm, and yet people have the audacity to try and say that the Premier League is not completely scripted," while another fan wrote: "Just put this in city’s dressing room tomorrow. No motivation needed."
A third commented: "City fans getting triggered over a rehearsal. Funnily enough lads they don’t just wing it when it comes to the Premier League title celebrations."
Pep was right the media really want Liverpool to win the league. We are actually on top of the table at the moment but the trophy is at Anfield 😂😂😂 https://t.co/LspwcusdzT— ¹⁰ (@SxrgixSZN) May 21, 2022
Earlier this week, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola insisted more people want Liverpool to win the Premier League due to the club's history ahead of the final day of the season.
That's right. The Spaniard reckons more fans want Jurgen Klopp's side to pip his side to the title as they have a greater history of winning championships.
He also believes Manchester City have been the 'outsiders in the last decade' as they look to claim their eighth league title on Sunday.

The 51-year-old said: "I'm sure my English isn't good after 4, 5 years. I said in the time you arrive in the titles, the teams with more history have more supporters.
"It happens in Spain and Germany and Italy. We are outsiders in the last decade.
"In that moment, of course people don't want Liverpool or us to win. Liverpool fans want to win, I'm not saying all the country are Liverpool fans but in general they are a team with more titles.
Guardiola added: "Maybe I'm wrong, but in countries all around the world there are two, three teams people support more than the other ones.
"Liverpool, United, Arsenal have a lot of history, we are new, how many times we arrive in this history? Brighton, Paul Dickov, I don't think so. It's not much. It's why we feel it's a privilege and won't waste this opportunity to enjoy the 95 minutes."
