Fans heading to tomorrow's two north west derby matches are being advised to plan their journeys and check before they travel.

Merseyside Police says it is working closely with Liverpool Football Club to monitor the weather ahead of tomorrow's derby fixture at Anfield.

Everton are due to face Liverpool while Manchester United will host Manchester City just hours after a predicted persistent and potentially heavy spell of snow.

At this stage both games are still planned to go ahead.

"We will be monitoring the weather forecast and assessing any travel disruption. We will be meeting with the club early tomorrow morning and fans will be updated as soon as possible."

– Ch Supt Chris Markey, Merseyside Police

While both Old Trafford and Anfield have under-soil heating, the club will be keen to protect the safety of fans if there is heavy snow on the roads around the stadiums.

Final decisions are expected to be made tomorrow morning.

Liverpool investigate claims fans were mistreated by Spanish Police

Liverpool Football Club are investigating claims that fans were mistreated by Spanish police, with some allegedly assaulted and denied entry to the stadium, before the 3-3 Champions League draw in Seville.

Almost half of the away seats were still empty when the match kicked off, many supporters were allegedly turned away, or let in and told to sit in any seat rather than the one they had been allocated.

There have also been claims on social media, which have not been verified, of fans being assaulted by Spanish police.

"Following detailed and troubling accounts given by Liverpool supporters attending the match against Sevilla last night, the club is seeking to establish the facts regarding their treatment at the hands of the host stewards and local police force.

"The safety and security of our supporters is our paramount concern and we intend to gather all the relevant information before responding further."

Klopp: Liverpool do not have a mentality problem

Liverpool squandered a three-goal half-time lead to throw away the chance of early Champions League qualification as Sevilla netted a 93rd-minute equaliser in Spain.

Famous for their three-goal second-half comeback to win this competition in Istanbul in 2005, the Merseysiders endured the reverse as, having seemingly been coasting towards the knockout stage with a game to spare, they were forced to settle for a point.

Roberto Firmino scored either side of a goal from Sadio Mane in an opening 45 minutes which could not have been better scripted for Jurgen Klopp's visitors.

However, a worrying wobble saw them concede twice to Wissam Ben Yedder - one a twice-taken penalty - in the 15 minutes after the interval and, with the memory of their Europa League final defeat to the same opposition 18 months ago in a similar manner still raw, Guido Pizarro drilled home an added-time corner.

But Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is adamant his players do not have a mentality problem:
