A married couple explain their Merseyside rivalry that even divides their dogs before Premier League Mornings Live's visit to Florida this weekend

Premier League Mornings Live, the fan fest hosted by the Premier League and NBC Sports, comes this weekend to Miami, a city of people passionate about the Premier League.

The Premier League's US Instagram account, @PLinUSA, is sharing the stories of some of those fans and their love of soccer and the league.

Nicohle and Chris

Meet married couple Nicohle and Chris, who have not let divided Merseyide loyalties get in the way of their 30 years together, and even their dogs have taken sides in this friendly Premier League rivalry.

Nicohle is a Liverpool fan and Chris supports Everton, while one of their dogs, Diesel, is a Red, while the other, Allie, is a Toffee.

“We've each bonded with one of our dogs, so our dogs are our favorites," Chris says. "I have quite a few photos of Allie posing with me in my [Everton] kit. Since Allie’s my dog, she is the Blue.

"Diesel, also known as Virgil van Diesel, is really fond of Nicohle. So each dog has their respective human and each human has their respective team, which means each dog has a team."

Nicohle adds: "We've been together almost 30 years. We get along. He's my best friend. I support Liverpool. Chris supports Everton. I forgive him for that. And I think he forgives me for my support. It's something we look forward to on the weekends."
