The upper tier of the Anfield Road stand, which will add more than 6, 000 seats and take the capacity to 61, 000, will then be opened in phases, with more seats added incrementally.
Why Liverpool are playing at Preston's Deepdale for pre-season friendlyLiverpool continues their preparations for the new campaign against SV Darmstadt 98 on Monday night.

However, in their next outing, Liverpool were held to a 4-4 draw by Greuther Furth. Mohamed Salah scored a late leveller to spare his side’s blushes in the eight-goal thriller.

It will be the final time Liverpool play before their opening game of the season against Chelsea next weekend. But even though this game will be played in the UK, it will not be played at Anfield; instead, it will be played at Preston North End’s Deepdale. The reason behind the neutral venue is due to the club’s expansion of the Anfield Road Stand. The stand, which will see the capacity at Anfield increase to 61, 000, is not expected to be fully operational before October.
New signing Alexis Mac Allister - a summer transfer from Brighton - picked up an injury in that game so Trent Alexander-Arnold might be asked to deputise in midfield.

Phillip Tietz was last year's 12-goal top scorer, but he has since left for Augsburg, with former Everton academy player Fraser Hornby signed from Reims to replace him.

Liverpool have already faced German opposition in pre-season, losing 4-3 to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in Singapore on Wednesday.
