Liverpool’s makeshift changing rooms installed at Goodison Park ahead of Merseyside derby with Everton – The Sun

THE two cabins Liverpool will use as makeshift changing rooms for Sunday’s Merseyside derby were installed today.

As our pictures show, cranes were in operation behind Goodison’s Sir Philip Carter Park Stand.

Everton will occupy both the home and away dressing rooms — one for players and the other for staff — so social distancing is maintained.

Liverpool could be crowned champions for the first time in 30 years on Sunday but cops have warned all fans to stay at home.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp said: “You can still make it really special.

"It’s still football and it’s still for you.

“But the final message is: Stay safe, support us from home.”

The Premier League have turned to using cabins at older stadiums as part of new safety protocols for Project Restart.

A Prem spokesperson confirmed: “Under our match day protocols, adequate space should be available in each Team and Match Officials’ Dressing Rooms to allow social distancing to be adhered to.

“To meet these requirements, clubs can consider the use of additional rooms that can be utilised as changing facilities.”

Social distancing guidelines mean for 25 people to use a room it would have to be around 112 square metres – far bigger than a number of changing rooms at grounds throughout the Premier League.

Strict protocols in place mean it will also be forbidden for Liverpool to all celebrate in one room after the game – meaning the Reds players and staff will only be able to raise a glass as part of two separate groups and for no longer than 40 minutes.
