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 at fixtures at home.

Everton are due to host Liverpool when both clubs resume their campaigns in 11 days' time, and the match could see the Reds claim the title if Manchester City lose to Arsenal next Wednesday.

That had led to concerns fans could congregate around the ground in breach of lockdown rules, but after meetings between the clubs and the authorities, the location has been agreed. This will be the first Merseyside derby to be shown on free-to-air TV since the Premier League was launched.
