#PremierLeagueStories – #SteveBruce Hoping Liverpool would still have Celebration Hangover when his Newcastle team meets them on the final day #NUFC #LFC
Newcastle manager Steve Bruce has admitted he hopes Liverpool are still feeling a little worse for wear following their Premier League trophy celebrations at Anfield earlier in this week. Despite wrapping up the title with seven games to spare, Liverpool had to wait until their final home game of the season before they were allowed to lift the trophy and collect their medals. Now the Newcastle manager is hoping the Liverpool squad will still be suffering from enjoying their ultimate victory with sore heads and tired legs when the sides clash at the weekend.
Steve Bruce said “I hope that they’ve been partying for three nights after they lifted the trophy and I hope there’s a few of them who are worse for wear! Although Bruce admits that even though some criticism has been placed on the Reds for their post-lockdown performances amid speculation form has dipped since securing the title, they will still be aiming to get yet another three points. Knowing their professionalism, I don’t think there will be.”
