Liverpool mayor Joe Anderson has changed his opposition to Liverpool playing Premier League games at home and the derby taking place at Everton.

Anderson feared fans congregating outside Anfield and Goodison Park amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Premier League is set to resume behind closed doors on 17 June, with venues for Liverpool’s games at Everton and Manchester City to be decided.

“We are in a better place than we were four weeks ago,” said Anderson.

“We’ve been able to convey why it’s so important nobody congregates outside or near grounds.”
