Liverpool’s next fixture hint
Liverpool’s possible return to Premier League action may have been accidentally leaked by the club’s main sponsor, Standard Chartered.
The champions-elect have not played in the league since the 2-1 victory against Bournemouth at Anfield on March 7, with a return to action in June earmarked by league bosses.
Liverpool’s shirt sponsor have their own app called Stand Red, which allows fans to see a countdown timer for the team’s next match.
And on Saturday, the app showed Liverpool’s next match as being away at Everton – at an unspecified venue – on Tuesday June 16, with a 9pm kick-off.
It could be an error, given the unusual kick-off time, although the date is coincidentally close to the weekend in which the Premier League plans to return.
