Liverpool could end up lifting the Premier League trophy on a temporary structure in the car park of their biggest rivals, Everton. The Reds travel to Goodison Park next Sunday and have the chance to win their first league title in 30 years.
Liverpool are on the brink of winning their first league title in 30 years, and need just six more points to do so.
However, with second-placed Manchester City taking on Arsenal on Wednesday night, they could need just one more win.
The Reds travel across the city to face Everton next Sunday, and could end up winning the title in the back yard of their arch rivals.
If City lose against Arsenal, Liverpool can seal the title with a win at Goodison Park, though their trophy presentation could take place outside of the stadium.

Teams throughout the league have been playing friendly matches behind-closed-doors to improve match fitness, with Liverpool welcoming Blackburn to Anfield on Thursday.
The Reds ran out 6-0 winners over the Championship side, and Jurgen Klopp revealed after the game that it felt strange to be playing in an empty stadium after so long without football.
He said: “Yes, it’s different, of course. You need to get used to it, but I like it.
