On this day 35 years ago, the most devastating occasion in Liverpool’s history took place – one that sent shockwaves around the world of football.

Overall, 97 supporters have lost their lives to the disaster – Andrew Devine added to the 96 after his sad passing in 2021 – and we remember each and every one of them today.

After years of being disgracefully blamed by the police and the media, a 2016 jury found that those fans were unlawfully killed, following incredible campaigning by the victims’ families.

Gone but never forgotten. Rest in peace the 97.

Liverpool players, staff and officials were paying their respects at the Hillsborough Memorial at Anfield earlier today:

Match of the night is Chelsea vs. Everton (8pm BST), in another big Premier League game for Sean Dyche’s side.

They are two points clear of relegation with a couple of games in hand, so victory at Stamford Bridge would feel significant.
