Everton fans are refusing to watch Liverpool win the league at Goodison Park


Liverpool's imminent title win is a fact rival fans are simply going to have to come to terms with. 

The Reds need just six more wins to confirm what we've known for the majority of the 2019/20 season. 

Remarkably, having gone unbeaten so far and drawn just one game, Jurgen Klopp's men are on course to wrap things up in record time on March 16. 

That will be a month earlier than any other side has ever won the Premier League - but sweetest of all, it would see Liverpool become champions if they beat Everton in the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park. 

There is, of course, a flip side to this story. One of horror, deep anguish and despair. 

This March, spare a thought for Evertonians who could have to endure one of their most miserable afternoons yet on their own turf. 

It's a fate Tottenham fans had to endure in 2004 when Arsenal's Invincibles won the league at White Hart Lane. 

Now, if Liverpool and Manchester City both proceed at their current rate of picking up points - so Pep Guardiola's men would need to lose one more game in between now and then - the unthinkable will happen just a few hundred yards from Anfield. 

Per The Athletic, that is proving too much to contemplate for some home fans, who have already started listing their seats on StubHub for between £100-£150, one fan claiming he "couldn't blame people who just can't go". 

That could, however, represent an issue if Liverpool fans were to buy tickets in the home end.

It's also noted many Toffees fans gave away their tickets for their trip to Leicester in 2016 to allow Foxes supporters to witness history; but you can't imagine them being as charitable this time around. 

Meanwhile, Everton are choosing to ignore the spectacle altogether by approaching the game as a normal fixture that could aid them as they aim for the top six thanks to a revival under Carlo Ancelotti. 

It could even be a chance to rob Liverpool of going unbeaten for the season - though nobody would bet on it since Liverpool haven't lost a derby since October 2010. 

If what feels like the inevitable happens, it's hard to blame Everton fans who don't want to be anywhere near Jordan Henderson lifting the trophy.
