With Liverpool preparing for the first home game of the season at Anfield against Premier League champions Leicester City, the excitement can be felt by staff, fans and players alike.
The main stand redevelopment at Anfield means that the team has not played a home game, and the fans have had to wait to watch the Reds take on Leicester in their first home game of the season.
