Worrying footage from inside Anfield emerges ahead of Liverpool vs Everton

Worrying footage from inside Anfield emerges ahead of Liverpool vs Everton

This is a concerning sight for supporters.

Worrying footage from inside Anfield stadium has emerged online ahead of the Merseyside derby.

Liverpool host bitter rivals Everton on Saturday lunchtime, with bragging right up for grabs.

Jurgen Klopp's side have had a promising start to the new season and sit just three points off top spot after eight games.

Perhaps, they should have more points, too, after Luis Diaz had a goal incorrectly ruled out against Tottenham, which would have seen the game end in a draw.

However, things don't look to be going quite so well off the pitch, after footage of the stadium went viral on social media. You can watch the clip below.

The video shows two workers inspecting the ground, which resembles more of a construction site than a stadium, joking that Everton's Bramley-Moore Dock is further along the line.

It was thought that renovation of the Anfield Road Stand would be completed in time for Saturday's Merseyside derby.

However, the club confirmed earlier this month that there would be further delays in opening the new section.

As a result, Anfield will operate at a reduced capacity of 51,000 for the highly anticipated clash, along with games against Arsenal and Manchester United in December.

Liverpool chief executive officer Billy Hogan confirmed the news in a statement which read: “Over the course of the last few days it has become clear that in order to complete a thorough assessment of that project completion timeline, it’s going to take longer than really we first thought.

“Ultimately, what that means for supporters is that until we have visibility of all the information needed, we’re going to have to maintain the status quo for the remainder of the calendar year, essentially meaning capacity at Anfield will remain the same as for the previous home games that we’ve seen this season."
