The Premier League held pre-match trophy rehearsals as usual ahead of today’s final match of the 2021/22 campaign, and excitement is rising online after images emerged from Anfield.
It will be the dramatic finale of the title race on Sunday afternoon.
Champions League finalists Liverpool are asking club legend Steven Gerrard as 14th-placed Aston Villa face league leaders Manchester City in the Etihad.
Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp’s team will host the Wolves, one point behind Citizens after 37 games.
Final preparations for Sunday’s title-makers are well underway and Anfield’s image has sparked a buzz on Saturday night ahead of Liverpool’s Bruno Laguet match.
Fans continued to speculate online, despite trophy rehearsals taking place regularly each time the race for the championship lasted until the last day.
One said, “Well, but people have the audacity to say the Premier League isn’t entirely scripted,” said one fan, “just leave this in the dressing room in the city tomorrow. It doesn’t need any motivation” wrote.
The third said: “Rehearsals spark City fans. Funny enough, they don’t just buzz at the Premier League championship celebrations.”
The media’s pep was right when they wanted Liverpool to win the league. We’re actually on the table right now, but the trophy is at Anfield 😂😂😂 https://t.co/LspwcusdzT

like. This Spaniard thinks more fans want Jurgen Klopp’s team to win the championship as they have a bigger history of winning the championship.
He also thinks Manchester City have been the ‘outsiders of the last decade’ looking for their eighth league title on Sunday.
“We are new outsiders in the last decade.”

The 51-year-old player said: “I’m sure my English won’t be good in four or five years. I said the team with more history will have more supporters when you reach the title.
“It’s happening in Spain, Germany and Italy. We’ve been outsiders for the last 10 years.
“At that moment, people don’t want Liverpool or us to win. Liverpool fans want to win. I’m not saying all countries are Liverpool fans, but in general they are a team with more titles.
Guardiola said: “I may be wrong, but in countries around the world, two or three teams apply more than others.
“Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal have a lot of history, we are new. How many times do we get to this history? Brighton, Paul Dickoff, I don’t think so. Not a lot. That’s why we say it’s a privilege. That’s why we felt and won. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to enjoy the 95th minute.”
