Merseyside derby decision will be out until Friday

A choice won’t be made until Friday on whether the Merseyside derby will be played at Goodison Park or a neutral setting on 21 June.

It is understood that the relevant archives were not gotten until last Friday and they need more opportunity to be read by the individuals from the Liverpool City Council ‘s safety advisory gathering.

The PA news agency understands that the relevant records have not been given until last Friday, so it takes more opportunity for the individuals from Liverpool City Council ‘s safety advisory board of trustees to read them.

The derby was one of just two games in favor of it in the initial rounds of Premier League fixtures released on Friday to have ‘setting TBC,’ with all different games in the restart being given the thumbs up to be played at the usual home scene.

It is accepted that Everton is happy to have the match, where local Liverpool rivals could retain the title if Manchester City’s nearest competitors lose to Arsenal on 17 June.

The other match still to be affirmed is a game against Liverpool by Manchester City on July 2.

The derby had been on a rundown of fixtures that South Yorkshire Police’s Deputy Chief Constable Mark Roberts, the UK ‘s football policing lead, said local powers had asked to be played in a neutral setting.

Merseyside Police appeared to contradict DCC Roberts by saying they were satisfied at Liverpool police matches.

The Reds can protect the title with six additional focuses regardless of what City does, meaning they could wrap up the title against Crystal Palace at Anfield on Wednesday, June 24.
