Supporters travelling to Anfield for this weekend's Premier League clash with West Ham United should note the following important information.

Due to essential repairs being undertaken on the M6 between junctions six and eight to the north west of Birmingham there will be night-time closures of this section of the motorway.

On Saturday and Sunday, the M6 northbound will be restricted to one operational lane during the daytime – so delays can be expected from 7am to 8pm each day.

There will also be daytime restrictions from the A34 and onto the northbound slip road at junction seven.

Fans planning to use the M6 northbound should allow plenty of extra time for the journey. Visit for more information and real-time updates.
