After receiving reduced allocation at Anfield for the league game, reports today suggest that United will get a proper allocation of around 6,000 for our FA Cup game against Liverpool at the end of this month.

“We have taken into account the improvement of the Manchester United supporters at the most recent Premier League fixture relating to the blocking of gangways and aisles,” said Stephen Clare, Liverpool City Council’s principal licensing officer. “Liverpool FC will be responsible for determining the actual numbers that this will result in.”

It is expected we’ll get the bottom tier of the Anfield Road stand, holding just under 6,400, but two seats at the end of each row, around 300, will not be sold.
