Everton ace Mason Holgate explains his plans for day of Liverpool’s title parade

Everton star Mason Holgate has insisted he will be as far away from Liverpool as possible during the title parade.

The Reds are closing in on a first-ever Premier League title in record form.

Jurgen Klopp's men sit 25 points ahead of Manchester City in the table, meaning that they are three victories away from winning the competition.

In theory, Liverpool could even clinch the title without kicking a ball.

City play three domestic fixtures before the Reds are next in action.

And if Pep Guardiola's men lose that trio of games, which includes clashes with Manchester United and Arsenal, the title is Liverpool's.

After a 30-year wait, it will not matter to Reds fans how they clinch the Premier League.

But the fact that they could beat local rivals Everton to secure it would make it much sweeter.

That is a very realistic scenario, with the Toffees facing their Merseyside foes after the Chelsea match today.

For Everton star Holgate, it is too much to bear and he will not be in town to watch Liverpool lift the trophy.

He said: “I’ll be a long way from Liverpool, yes, I think so!

"To be honest, I don’t think I want to be anywhere near that!

“But they have done well, there is nothing you can say about that.

“If they win it, they will have deserved to win the title.”

The defender has been flourishing since Carlo Ancelotti took over but he has acknowledged that Liverpool have simply been a class apart this year.

He added: “Liverpool are doing well and there is nothing we can do about that.

“Obviously we play them next week and we look forward to that type of game.

“The rivalry is important when we play against them but when we are not playing them, we just have to concentrate on ourselves."
