The city will be painted red again on Sunday as Anfield welcomes our neighbours from down the M62, Manchester City. With the reds currently sitting pretty at the top of the Premier League, the blues have a lot to gain from the last of the weekend fixtures.
Will Jordan Henderson start after missing out on Champions League action against Genk earlier in the week? Here’s hoping.
Ahead of the Premier League clash, Superintendent Paul White of Merseyside Police has issued the following statement. He said: “As with any match, a comprehensive and appropriate policing operation has been put in place ahead of Sunday’s game and we have liaised with both clubs and their supporter groups.
“We are aware of one poster on social media regarding a bus welcome. The corresponding last fixture ran smoothly and we are working to ensure this game can be enjoyed safely by all as well as minimising any disruption to local residents and roads.
“As with all Premier League fixtures at Anfield, we will have officers on duty at the ground, both uniformed and plain clothed, supported by mobile CCTV, provided by Liverpool City Council, and specialist resources including the Dog Section, mounted police and the National Police Air Service. We will also have a city centre policing plan in place throughout the day. This is standard procedure.
“We know that this will be a busy operation and we hope that fans attending the match will act as ambassadors for their clubs. As usual we would ask fans with tickets to arrive at the ground as early as possible. Fans without tickets should not attend at all; they will not be allowed entry into the stadium.”
