Anfield Road End update & Everton charged with FFP breach – Latest LFC News

The weekend is nearly here and the big LFC talking points include progress with the new Anfield Road stand as well as the build-up to tonight’s women’s derby at Goodison.


First seats installed in new Anfield Road Stand

The Anfield Road End expansion continues to move at speed and the first seats have now been installed in the new stand.

It’s the latest milestone ahead of its unveiling prior to next season, with a group of primary school children from Anfield having the honours to see the new seats first.

Thankfully, there looks to be decent leg room and the view will certainly improve once the roof on the existing stand is removed!

The new stand will add 7,000 extra seats, although the distribution of those tickets was subject to plenty of disappointment, with the number of hospitality seats increasing from the initial plans.


Goodison derby build-up & Alonso making waves

  • Gemma Bonner has described tonight’s Merseyside derby at Goodison as a “huge honour” to be involved in
  • Erling Haaland is reportedly “touch and go” for a return to face Liverpool – but we’re still expecting him to start!
