An image circulating online appears to show that Liverpool are planning to lift the Premier League trophy on the Kop end at Anfield.
The Reds will lift the trophy after next Wednesday night's home clash with Chelsea, in what is their final home game of the campaign.
The club's first top-flight league title in 30 years was sealed back on June 25, when Chelsea's 2-1 win over Manchester City at Stamford Bridge ensured that Pep Guardiola's side could no longer catch Jurgen Klopp's men at the top of the table.
But with seven matches remaining of their season, the Reds have been made to wait to get their hands on the trophy for the first time in the Premier League era.
With no fans allowed inside Anfield to celebrate an historic moment in the club's history, attention has turned to what the Reds could do to mark the victorious campaign, which could still end in a top-flight points record.
And now an image circulating online from Twitter user '@dxnii50' shows that seats have been taken out from behind the goal at the iconic Kop end of Anfield, allowing for what could be a temporary stage erected on the stand.
That could allow for Jordan Henderson and his teammates to lift the trophy in front of a backdrop of the Kop end, which has been adorned with flags and banners ever since Premier League football resumed last month.
Normally the winning club would receive the trophy on a stage in the middle of the pitch, either in their final home game of the season or in their last match of the season if the title race has gone to the wire – with Manchester City lifting the trophy at Brighton last season.
But with social distancing guidelines in place, it remains to be seen what Liverpool's celebration will look like next Wednesday.
If it is to take place on the Kop, then it will surely rank as one of the most unique trophy presentations in football history.
