Anderson, an avid Everton fan, met the winning team and their manager when they returned from their 2-0 win over Spurs before Sunday's victory parade.

But he told cabinet members earlier that he couldn't resist a joke about Liverpool’s future success.

He said: “I did shake hands with Klopp when the team came back from Madrid but I told him, ‘if you keep on like this and keep on winning you won’t be getting another parade next year’."

Have the poorest councils had the biggest cuts?

Reality Check

The BBC's Reality Check team looks at Labour's claim that the most deprived council areas of England have seen more cuts than their better-off neighbours.

Labour said it looked at the spending power of the 10 most deprived council areas, according to an official ranking published every few years by the government - most recently in 2015.

Those areas include Blackpool, Burnley, Knowsley, Liverpool and Manchester.

BBC analysis suggests that all 10 listed areas saw higher than average cuts and for nine of them, that cut was at least twice the average.

Since 2010, council spending power, including funding from central government and local taxes, has fallen by almost 30%.
