Liverpool will have to claim the Premier League title at a neutral venue

It looks like Liverpool will not be clinching the Premier League title at Anfield.

British police have set out the matches they would like to be played at neutral venues – and they include any Liverpool game where the title could be won.

The matches which have been requested to take place at neutral grounds are Manchester City v Liverpool, Manchester City v Newcastle, Manchester United v Sheffield United, Newcastle v Liverpool and Everton v Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp’s side need only two more wins to capture the title.

The police statement adds that “the game in which Liverpool could secure the league title” should also be moved, but this may end up needing to be more than one match if the Reds do not clinch it at the first attempt.

Meanwhile, the 2019/20 FA Cup final has been rescheduled for August 1. The competition had reached the quarter-final stage before  football was suspended on March 13.

The four matches in the last eight will be played over the weekend of June 27 and 28, with the semi-finals on July 18 and 19
