Liverpool's hopes of winning the Premier League title at Anfield have been boosted by local police saying they'd have no objection to the club playing at home when the season resumes.
The Premier League are currently considering moving next month's derby between Liverpool and Everton to a neutral venue as well as other fixtures where Jurgen Klopp's side could seal their first English top-flight crown in 30 years due to safety concerns.
Everton and Liverpool are expected to contest the game being moved and Merseyside police have today given their backing to the rest of the two clubs' games being at their home grounds.
"Merseyside Police is ready to provide whatever policing is required of us in relation to games being played at our Premier League stadia once the season restarts," they said in a statement to the Liverpool Echo.
"In relation to crime and disorder we have no objections to any of the Everton or Liverpool home fixtures being played at their respective grounds.
"We have a good working relationship with both clubs, and their fan groups, and are content that we can work together in advance of the restart of the season."
Yesterday the Premier League's chief executive Richard Masters indicated that a decision on neutral venues would be made within the next seven to ten days.
