Leicester boss Rodgers hopes Liverpool can be confirmed Premier League champions at Anfield

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers hopes Liverpool can be confirmed as Premier League champions at Anfield.

Rodgers has welcomed signals that the authorities are to trust Liverpool supporters and allow the club to clinch the Premier League title at Anfield if the fixtures fall in their favour.

There had been suggestions that the club would be forced to play at a neutral ground when they seal their title triumph over fears that Liverpool supporters would mass outside the stadium.

"There is no doubt that Liverpool will go on and win the title they deserve," said Rodgers to the Daily Mail. "They have been exceptional this year. It is a real, real shame that this whole pandemic has meant they won't be able to do it in front of their supporters because they have waited so long to do it.

"However, there has to be that trust in the supporters. If we are going to go to games home and away rather than neutral grounds, that is what the games should be. You get the opportunity to win it at home playing at Anfield, then absolutely great.

"And then later down the line when all of this returns to some sort of normality, they can get the opportunity to share that moment with the supporters. And the same with Celtic in Scotland, by the way."
