Liverpool Could Win Premier League Title at Home after All

LONDON  — Liverpool could win the Premier League title at home after all.

Police originally indicated they wanted the club's second game after the restart against Crystal Palace to be staged at a neutral venue because of concerns that supporters could congregate outside Anfield.

But the league now says the game on June 24 is scheduled to be at Liverpool's home stadium.

The Merseyside derby at Everton could still be played away from Goodison Park on June 21. The venue is still to be confirmed.

Liverpool, which leads second-placed Manchester City by 25 points and is two wins from ending its 30-year title drought, could clinch the trophy in its first game back against Everton if City loses to Arsenal on June 17.

Before the 1915 GMT kickoff in Manchester, a game between Aston Villa against Sheffield United will mark the return of the league from its 100-day shutdown in a 1700 GMT kickoff.

Fans will not be allowed at games for the remainder of the season, which is now due to end on the final weekend of July.
