The Merseyside derby will be played at Goodison Park on June 21 after Liverpool City Council gave the go ahead for Everton and Liverpool to complete their remaining fixtures at home.

Everton are due to host Liverpool when both clubs resume their campaigns in 10 days time, and the match could see Liverpool claim the Premier League title if Manchester City lose to Arsenal next Wednesday.

That had led to concerns fans could congregate around the ground in breach of restrictions imposed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

But following meetings involving the club, health authorities, the police and the council the match has been given the green light.
