Anfield will come within a whisker of beating a record that’s stood for almost 40 years when reigning Premier League champions Leicester City come to town next weekend.
Not since 1977 have we seen more than 55,000 people cram into the famous old ground. On that occasion, West Ham Utd were the visitors and we walked away with a 0-0 draw in front of 55,675 fans.
The Echo report that the home game next weekend is almost certain to be a sell-out, given the historic importance of the event and our new Main Stand finally opening to the public.
Here’s the team from that last game in front of such a large crowd:
Clemence, Neal, Jones, Smith, Kennedy, Hughes, Keegan, Case, Heighway, Johnson, McDermott
It looks a bit different to the side we’ll see in nine days – not least because there isn’t one member of that eleven who was born outside of the British Isles!
Who would you pick for the Leicester game? Let us know.
