Liverpool Fans Defy Police Warnings, Gather At Anfield To Celebrate On PL Trophy Night

Merseyside Police issued a dispersal zone around Anfield on Wednesday night after Liverpool fans defied warnings not to gather outside the stadium on Premier League trophy night.

Liverpool defeated Chelsea 5-3 in their final home game of the season.

The force moved to set up the quarantine following scenes of tightly-packed crowds on the streets outside the ground.

Most of the fans appeared less than one metre between each other and were not wearing masks despite prior warnings from the police and club not to gather outside the ground due to coronavirus social distancing guidelines.

As the game reached its conclusion and fireworks could be heard from inside the ground, Merseyside Police tweeted: “A dispersal zone now in place outside Anfield Stadium following increased numbers of people gathering near to the ground tonight.

”Please don’t put yourselves and others at risk, the best view of the trophy presentation will be on the TV.”
