Liverpool FC has officially unveiled brand new artwork at Anfield celebrating 14 of the Reds' past and present forward players.

The collection has been completed by licensed street art company MurWalls and took more than seven hours to finish on the eve of this weekend's Legends of the North fixture.

Sixteen different artists collaborated to bring the artwork to life on the hoardings that surround the Anfield Road expansion, which is due to be completed ahead of the 2023-24 season.

Ian Rush, Sir Kenny Dalglish, John Aldridge, Dirk Kuyt, Luis Suarez, Fernando Torres and Robbie Fowler sit on one half alongside two club crests.

Modern-day stars Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Divock Origi, Diogo Jota, Luis Diaz and Darwin Nunez complete the second half.

Marc Silver, founder and CEO of MurWalls, said: "We wanted to create some artwork for the community whilst the building work is in progress. 

"Together with LFC, we came up with the concept to celebrate the club's attacking legends.

"Going back 25 years to present day and working with our MurWalls artist team, each one is a different style for each individual portrait."

Following the completion of the Anfield Road expansion, the artwork will be cut into 14 individual pieces and auctioned off, with all proceeds to be donated to LFC Foundation.
