Liverpool have finished their preparations for their Premier League parade after footage emerged of the completed podium that has been erected on the Kop where the trophy will be presented at Anfield on Wednesday evening.
Jordan Henderson will finally get his hands on the trophy Kopites have craved more than any other after Liverpool conclude their final home match of the season against Chelsea.

Liverpool have had to be patient since mathematically securing the club’s 19th league title last month. Klopp’s champions won the English top-flight in record-breaking time with the Chelsea encounter representing the Reds’ sixth match since their confirmation as champions.
A video which was released on social media shows off the stunning visuals that will be present at Anfield with the famous trophy in attendance at the home of the champions for the first time this season.
The ECHO revealed this week that the PL have granted Liverpool special dispensation to allow families of the squad to attend Wednesday night’s trophy presentation at Anfield.
The only dampener on what is set up to be a perfect evening on Merseyside will be the fact that supporters are not allowed into grounds until October at the earliest, meaning Liverpool will lift the trophy without the majority of fans at the 54,000-seater stadium.
Despite this, supporters remain optimistic on what is to be one of the great emotional spectacles of the season.
Here are just a few of the responses following the leaked footage of the Anfield podium…
Oh man that’s started my off again 😭
