Merseyside police will go to court today in a bid to move the Liverpool derby to lunch time kick off. The clash between Everton and Liverpool at Goodison Park is due to kick off at 5:30 but officers claim there will be too much trouble after the game.
Liverpool council's licensing committee have already turned down an application to bring forward the game. Police will now take the case to magistrates warning that a later kick off will stretch their resources.
Everton fans got a surprise last night as they got to be part of filming for the new rocky film. Sly Stallone popped up on the big screen at half-time of the Barclays Premier League match at Goodison Park to get the fans to cheer for the recording of scenes.
Toffees fan Stallone is set to reprise his role as boxer Rocky in 'Creed'.
But it wasn't enough to life them to a win, Kevin Mirallas missed penalty left the home fans with little to cheer about as the game ended 0-0.
Boxer Tony Bellew is asking Everton fans to stay in their seats at half time tonight, as filming takes place for an upcoming Hollywood movie.
He will be starring in a Rocky spin-off called Creed, chronicling the career of Apollo Creed's grandson Adonis.
Need a favour from you blue boys tonight! If your in Goodison Park then please stay in your seat at halftime for the short message #COYB
