Police rebuke Liverpool fans after Premier League street party

Prior to the title being won, police and local authorities had warned fans not to gather because of the fear of further spreading the coronavirus.

Since Sheikh Mansour's takeover in 2008, City have achieved everything except the Champions League, a target the club hope to achieve this season to get ahead of any suspension.

Thousands of Liverpool supporters congregated outside Anfield Stadium to celebrate the club's EPL triumph.

Liverpool thrashed Crystal Palace 4-0 on Wednesday, with that result meaning City needed to beat Chelsea to delay their title win.

Liverpool on Saturday criticised some of its own fans for "wholly unacceptable" behaviour after they crowded parts of the city to celebrate the team's first championship in 30 years.

By the time Chelsea's 2-1 victory over City was confirmed on Thursday night around 100 fans, many wearing facemasks, were outside the Main Stand at Anfield where they let off fireworks and waved flags.

As a outcome, Liverpool won the title with seven games to spare, becoming the first side in English top-flight history to secure the trophy after just 31 game rounds.

"The overwhelming majority of fans have recognised the fact that now is not the time to gather together to celebrate, and chose to mark the event safely", he said. On Thursday, when they gathered outside Anfield, you could argue that the passion was there and we had to accept that was inevitable.

City look to be in need of defensive reinforcements but could struggle to attract the world class talent they need if Champions League football is off the cards. "Until it's safe for us to come together, please celebrate at home".

"By doing this you keep yourself, your family, friends and neighbours safe".

"As we all know, Merseyside has been disproportionately affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and we must all do what we can to prevent further cases and deaths in our communities".

"Please follow the advice of the players, the manager and the club by putting safety first".

Joe Anderson, the Everton-supporting mayor of Liverpool, urged fans to adhere to social distancing.
