THE ‘mini-derby’ between Liverpool and Everton’s Under 21s has been moved to Chester, it was announced today.

The match in which Liverpool are the home team was scheduled to take place at Langtree Park in St Helens next Monday (March 9) at 7pm.

But the clubs will now meet at Chester’s Deva Stadium because of the state of the pitch at Langtree.

The match has plenty riding on it with both teams level on 20 points after this week’s fixtures, with Liverpool fifth and Everton sixth in the table.

Both teams are three points behind leaders Manchester United, with the Reds having two games in hand and the Blues with one.

The teams had contrasting fortunes this week with David Unsworth’s young Blues losing 4-0 to second-placed Spurs while Michael Beale’s Reds beat current champions Chelsea 2-0 in a live TV game also played at Chester.

Liverpool will be hoping for revenge after their under 18s were humbled 5-0 by the Blues at Finch Farm just 10 days ago although Liverpool’s under 16s did win their derby fixture on the very same day.
