It has now been confirmed the the capacity of Anfield for this season will be 54,167, making it the fifth largest ground in the Premier League. The capacity has been increased from 45,362 by building two additional tiers on top of the existing Main Stand, adding almost 9,000 extra seats.

New Main Stand At Liverpool

As the list below shows Manchester United's Old Trafford is still by far the largest in the Premier League, with a capacity of 76,100. The Emirates Arsenal (60,432) is the second largest with West Ham United's new London Stadium home sitting third biggest at 60,000. Only the Etihad Stadium in Manchester is larger than Anfield, but not by much with a capacity of 55,097.

Still with Tottenham Hotspur building a new 61,000 stadium at White Hart Lane which will open in 2018 and Chelsea likely to announce the go ahead for the start of works to build a new 60,000 stadium at Stamford Bridge, Anfield is not going to stay fifth largest in the Premier League for long.
