Few stadiums in European football can compare to Anfield when it comes to atmosphere.
Whether it be against rivals Manchester United or Burnley, Liverpool fans create a buzz like no other with their rapturous support and breathtaking rendition of 'You'll Never Walk Alone'.
Indeed, in 2015, Steven Gerrard hailed Anfield as his favourite stadium and claimed no arena can compare because of the memories he created there.

"You know there are bigger stadiums out there and some wonderful atmospheres," the former Liverpool captain said in an LFC TV documentary.
"There are some giant clubs out there where I've played and I've enjoyed the experience but, all my memories and great feelings that I've had in my career, the majority of them have been at Anfield.

"I've had some bad ones as well, that'll live with me. But some of my best nights and my best performances have been here so it'll always have a special place in my heart."
Gerrard's opinion may come across as bias, but that's the effect Anfield has on those who have had the privilege of playing there week in, week out.
That's not the case if you're Mario Balotelli, though.
The Italian spent two frustrating seasons at Liverpool - one of which on loan at AC Milan - but still received unwavering support from the fans, who wanted nothing more than for him to succeed on Merseyside.
Balotelli joined Nice in the summer and, when told how many shirts have been sold with his name printed on the back, he responded by hailing the French side's supporters as the "best" he's ever had.
"Is that true? That's cool!" he told Telefoot. "I'm always happy with that. Of all the clubs I've played for, these are the most passionate supporters I've ever had.
"At Inter, Milan, Manchester City, Liverpool they were passionate, but here they're the best."
A questionable statement, I think you'll agree, with cult hero John Arne Riise quickly - and brilliantly - responding to Balotelli's comments (see below).
The Norwegian said: "Just heard Balotelli saying Nice have the best supporters? No disrespect, but NO CHANCE they can compete with Anfield and @LFC fans. Never."
Balotelli's stance might have been different had he stayed long enough to play in front of the incredible new Main Stand, which has increased capacity to 54,000 fans.
Because, if it was at all possible, Anfield is louder and more vibrant than ever before.
