Respects were paid to the 96 supporters who lost their lives in the Hillsborough tragedy, before Liverpool's match with Chelsea on Sunday.

On the eve of the 30th anniversary of the disaster, which unfolded at the FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest on April 15, 1989, fans inside Anfield observed a minute’s silence in memory of those who died.

Commemorative mosaics were formed on the Kop and in the Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand ahead of kick-off, reading ‘96’ and ‘30 years’ respectively.

Earlier in the day, the visitors paid their own poignant tribute by laying a wreath at the Hillsborough memorial at Anfield.

Watch the minute’s silence in the video above and see the mosaic and memorial tributes below.
