Man City Are Going To Great Lengths To Avoid Another Bus Incident At Anfield

Man City Are Going To Great Lengths To Avoid Another Bus Incident At Anfield

This Sunday evening will see the two teams who have been put forwards at the sides who will contest the Premier League this season. Coming off the back of a record breaking title win, Man City are no doubt favourites to retain there crown, but a reinforced Liverpool side has started the season well, and with both sides locked on 19 points after seven games, Sunday's Anfield showdown is the perfect setting to lay down a marker for their title credentials.

Pep Guardiola does not have a brilliant record against Klopp away from home, with the Catalan losing all three meetings with the German at Anfield.

One factor that may have played into one of those losses is the bus incident which occurred in their Champions League quarter final tie last April, where Man City's coach was attacked by Liverpool fans who threw bottles, cans and flares at the vehicle as it made its way to Anfield.


Well it look like the Manchester club are making sure that there is no repeat these scenes with a different route planned for City's bus as well as beefed up surveillance.

According to Sky Sports, the coach was fitted with 15 'spy cameras' at the start of the season in order to avoid a repeat of the incident in Liverpool, where Merseyside police failed to charge anyone in connection with the attack.

The report also says that the cameras 'can swivel 360 degrees and allow the controller to zoom in on any potential aggressors'.

Hopefully these measures will be enough to avoid more unpleasant scenes on Sunday, with head of the Merseyside police Dave Charnock also stating that there will be heightened security in the build up to the match:


Everyone involved is working hard to ensure there is no repeat of the events that occurred outside Anfield before the Champions League fixture between the clubs in April.

There will be additional officers on duty at the ground, both uniformed and plain clothed, and we will have a city centre policing plan in place throughout the day.
