Manchester City: Fans fume at possibility of Merseyside derby at Etihad Stadium - Manchester City

A number of Manchester City fans have voiced their opposition to the prospect of the Merseyside derby being played at the Etihad Stadium.

The Mirror reported this morning that the Premier League fixture between Everton and Liverpool could be moved to the champions’ home ground on 20 June amid fears that fans of the Reds could congregated near the currently designated venue of Goodison Park. The news was later shared on Twitter by @City_Chief.

As noted by The Mirror, there is a possibility that Jurgen Klopp’s team could clinch the title in that fixture if Manchester City lose their match against Arsenal on 17 June and Liverpool then win the following weekend, which would leave them with a mathematically insurmountable lead.

According to The Mirror, both Merseyside clubs are attempting to convince the authorities to let them play home fixtures at their respective stadia, with Liverpool reportedly being told that they cannot play at Anfield until such time that they have clinched the title and the subsequent hysteria has diminished.
