Liverpool resume their season as they travel to Everton for the Merseyside Derby on Sunday 21 June, knowing that a win will take them within just three points of securing the Premier League title.

However, Manchester City beat Arsenal on Wednesday night, meaning Liverpool still need two wins to secure the Premier League title, ruling out a trophy-clinching moment against their old rivals at Goodison Park.

Success in ‘Backlash’ ring

One sport that’s been keeping viewers entertained, while football has been away, has been wrestling; and WWE superstar Sheamus — real name Stephen Farrelly — performed at a gruelling pay-per-view event in the form of Backlash which aired live last Sunday night.

The South African caught up with the world-renowned Irish wrestler not too long before he beat Jeff Hardy at Backlash and we got into loads of football talk as well. 

Celtic warrior on growing up as Liverpool fan in Dublin

Fans of the WWE will be well aware that Sheamus is also a massive Liverpool fan. We capitalised on our chat with him to discuss the highly anticipated restart of football’s most-watched league last weekend.

The Celtic warrior shared his joy ahead of the title run-in and also gave fans some insight into his experiences of being a Liverpool fan growing up in Dublin, Ireland. 

We had a quirky rapid-fire round to wrap things up with Sheamus chatting about playing at centre back during his younger days, reading He-Man comic books and his lockdown workout routine.
