Reds boss Jurgen Klopp said in a video message: "Today is the most significant date for our football club each year.

"The plan was for us to be together at Anfield but this is not possible, the only thing we can make sure is we are in each other's thoughts.

"Believe me you have our thoughts, you have our prayers and most of all you have our love. You'll never walk alone."

Meanwhile, Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has sent a message to all those affected by the Hillsborough disaster on behalf of the club's players.

He said: "Today was a day when as a club we were all supposed to be together at Anfield to honour the lives of 96 people who went to a football match and never came home.

"The fact that we are unable to do so will make this anniversary especially hard for the families and survivors of Hillsborough.
