Liverpool‘s mayor Joe Anderson has actually motivated Reds fans to “go home” after a second night of wild events in the city following the club’s title accomplishment.
Jurgen Klopp‘s side ended a 30- year wait to be crowned champions of England on Thursday night as Chelsea’s 2-1 success over incumbents Manchester City handed them the Premier League title following an extraordinary dominant campaign.

The UK stays under stringent social distancing standards in the middle of the possibility of a second wave of the illness, however those rules were flouted in the wake of Liverpool’s accomplishment on Thursday as thousands gathered to Anfield to commemorate.
The celebration advanced Friday night as pleased fans continued to disregard the limitations, requiring the mayor and the authorities to intervene.
Composing on Twitter, Mayor Anderson stated: “I appreciate #LFC fans want to celebrate but please, for your own safety, and that of others, go home and celebrate at home. Covid-19 is still a major risk and our city has already lost far too many people to the illness.”
He later on added: “There is clearly too many people intoxicated and causing anti social behaviour, around City Centre, Please I urge you leave the City centre now it is not safe. @MerseyPolice will take action against people not obeying rules Covid-19 is still a real risk.”

We do not have the power to do this,” a declaration checked out.
“If you know someone out celebrating right now, please message them and ask them to bring the celebration home.”
Numerous videos that went viral on Twitter revealed a firework being targeted at the renowned Liver building, with fans then seen cheering as it hit.
