There was record-breaking Anfield news on Monday ahead of the weekend’s fixture, while Jurgen Klopp‘s squad numbers were boosted following the return of Wataru Endo.

 

Close to 61,000 at Anfield

Liverpool will have close to 61,000 at Anfield on Saturday, with the latest Anfield Road End update a positive one as we edge closer to the expansion being fully complete.

Should the stand pass further internal emergency conditions tests in conjunction with the council, there will be at least 60,000 inside the ground for the visit of Burnley.

It will be a new record attendance for the club, with only a small section of seats now left to be complete in the weeks to come.

It means that the either the visit of Luton or the FA Cup fifth round tie later this month could be the first match with a full 61,000.

That will be a memorable sight!

A message from Jones

There will be plenty of feelings lingering after Sunday’s result, and Curtis Jones was one of the only players to have a social media presence in the aftermath.

On Instagram, he said: “It wasn’t our night but that’s football sometimes! We will stick together and keep going as always.”

Onto Saturday, Reds!
