Premier League will take trophy to both Man City AND Liverpool on final day of season – but one will be a fake

THE PREMIER LEAGUE trophy will be present at both the Etihad and Anfield on Sunday – well, sort of.

According to the Daily Telegraph, the genuine thing will be at Manchester City while a FAKE will be sent to Liverpool.

The decision to send the real trophy to the Etihad is because the Prem leaders only need to beat Aston Villa to secure their fourth title in five years.

A replica and blank medals will be at Liverpool, who are behind City by one point and still need to beat Wolves to keep their hopes alive.

Premier League chief executive Richard Masters will be in Manchester with the actual trophy whereas interim chairman Peter McCormick will be at the Kop with the duplicate.

When the title race goes to the wire on the final day, the winners' engraving takes place after the presentation.

The winning team is asked to return the trophy as well as the medals after the celebrations so they can be properly completed.

A full Premier League events staff will be present at both stadiums to prepare a potential title presentation.

They will also build the stage and manage photographers as well as broadcasters around the event.

Liverpool are still chasing an unprecedented Quadruple after winning the Carabao and FA Cup this season.
