Fans travelling to Anfield for Liverpool versus Arsenal on Saturday August 24 are advised to plan their journey in advance and arrive at the stadium early to avoid delays.
Supporters should be aware that there will be disruption to the Merseyrail network on Saturday due to planned strike action. A reduced train service will run across the Merseyrail network:
- There will be no trains running on the Kirkby, Ellesmere Port or Hunts Cross lines during the strike action.
- Most services will run between the hours of 7am and 7pm. However, there will be a break in service during the middle of the day. Please check last train times here.
- Some stations will be closed.
- The Soccerbus will not be in operation on Saturday as trains will not be stopping at Sandhills station.

The 501 and 502 services (Peoplesbus) will also be in operation post-match, departing from Walton Breck Road to Lime Street station. LFC fan support will be on hand to assist should you have any queries.
