Henry and wife Linda Pizzuti arrived on Merseyside on Monday ahead of the game and Henry posted the update on his twitter on Tuesday lunchtime ahead of the game.
Work on Anfield’s new Main Stand has progressed at some speed since the turn of the year, with the Hillsborough Memorial and Main Stand gates being removed. The Shankly Gates are also to be removed and placed in storage until work is complete.
Linda later posted this video to her Instagram:
The new Main Stand is due to be completed for the 2016/17 season, taking the stadium’s capacity to around 54,000.
Liverpool have ensured their final game of this season is away, and the opening game of next season will also be away, allowing for sustained work to take place over the summer.
Watch the video below of how the new stand will be constructed:
