When will Liverpool lift the Premier League trophy? Reds to be awarded trophy AFTER Chelsea game at Anfield on the Kop


Liverpool will officially be presented with the Premier League trophy after their game against Chelsea and will lift it on the Kop.

The Reds clinched their first title for 30 years back in June, but fans cannot see the players hoist the trophy aloft due to COVID-19 regulations.

Liverpool will be lifting the Premier League trophy in the coming weeks after securing the title with seven games to spare

However, league officials have decided to allow the club to lift the trophy at Anfield on Wednesday on their famous stand.

The ceremony will be free to air on television and club legend Sir Kenny Dalglish will hand out medals, while captain Jordan Henderson will be available to lift the trophy in spite of his injury.

The England international was ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee injury, but manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed his stricken skipper will be part of the celebrations.

Henderson will become the first Liverpool captain since Alan Hansen in 1990 to lift a league trophy and both he and his teammates will receive the trophy on a podium surrounded by banners made by fans and built in the middle of the famous Kop Stand.

The club has urged fans to ‘stay at home to enjoy the ceremony’ in light of the ongoing measures in place to safeguard against the spread of coronavirus.

“With supporters unable to attend the behind-closed-doors fixture, the historic occasion will involve a unique presentation designed to acknowledge and celebrate Liverpool fans,” the club said.
