Riding high at the top of the Premier League with the title in their sights, what better time to for Liverpool to reveal a proposed expansion to their iconic Anfield stadium. That's exactly what the league leaders have done by unveiling stadium expansion plans for their 'Main' and 'Anfield Road' Stands.

New images show the detailed design proposals for the redevelopment of the Main Stand which could add an additional 8,500 seats taking the stand's capacity to nearly 21,000 and overall Anfield capacity to around 54,000.

Incorporating the iconic club crest into the proposed main stands exterior elevation, the plans also include a two-storey podium and a carefully designed cloister which will become the new home for the Hillsborough Memorial.

The main stand will open onto a wide public concourse which will link the stadium into the wider Anfield area, whilst the outline proposals for the Anfield Road stand provide for an increase in its capacity of around 4,800 seats.
