Anfield has a reputation for having an incredible atmosphere but that hasn’t always been the case in recent years.

However, whenever a big match rolls around, there is no doubting the immense noise that can be generated by Kopites.

The scenes we’ve seen recently on Merseyside have been pretty special. The Reds have brushed aside Manchester United, Borussia Dortmund and Villarreal in the Europa League with help from the crowd.

The streets on Anfield Road have been lined with supporters to greet their players with red pyro hours ahead of kick-off, before they enter the stadium to roar on their side.

They needed to be in fine voice to urge their side to score three times in 24 minutes to beat Dortmund 4-3 while that atmosphere was emulated when they overturned their 1-0 first leg defeat to beat Villarreal 3-0 at Anfield.

And one man that knows all about good supporters is Jurgen Klopp. He spent seven years in charge of Dortmund with their Westfalenstadion considered to be the most atmospheric stadium in Europe.

However, Klopp has heaped praise on Liverpool supporters and thinks there isn’t currently a better fan base.

“We had great atmospheres, maybe the greatest in the world in this moment,” he told reporters, per the Liverpool Echo.

Klopp may be making these comments in the hope to rally the fans ahead of their Europa League final with Sevilla next week.

Immediately after beating Villarreal, Klopp said: "We go to Basel. We take, I don't know, 50, 60, 70,000 Liverpudlians with us. Not in the stadium, but in the city -- maybe 100,000," Klopp told BT Sport. "It is a nice city by the way, close to my home.

"Go there, create an atmosphere and let's do our best again. It's well deserved and we're really, really pleased with all the boys."

However, he soon retracted that statement by saying the city “isn’t ready” for that many fans.

That isn’t likely to prevent a large number of scousers from heading to Switzerland, though.

The club, as expected, sold out their 9,000 ticket allocation and were handed a further 1,400 seats due to Sevilla being unable to sell out.

But it’s highly likely many more than 10,400 Liverpool fans will find a way to be inside the St. Jakob-Park stadium next Wednesday generating yet another incredible atmosphere.
