Chelsea hosted Liverpool at Stamford Bridge for the 21st game of the Premier League, however in this game the fans remembered what it is like to watch a game standing up, at least in a match between the first two categories of English football.

This measure came back after 27 years, as the last time there were standing fans in English stadiums was in the 1994-95 season and it will be implemented as a pilot, to see how it will go.

The uprising had been banned as a precaution against hooliganism, but the British government had piloted his return. that their stages have the ability -due to construction- to accommodate standing while the other teams will need to make some necessary arrangements to have a similar ability.
