Liverpool have announced Wednesday’s League Cup encounter at home against AFC Bournemouth will go ahead as planned.

Anfield was temporarily closed on Tuesday as a precautionary measure due to an incident and there were doubts as to whether the fourth-round tie would take place.

The situation has since been resolved, though, and the fixture will therefore go ahead as scheduled.

Liverpool’s stadium was evacuated following a security alert earlier on Tuesday, with police being called to Anfield at around 3pm local time. 

Unconfirmed reports suggested two men went missing while on a guided tour of the stadium, prompting a security alert and the ground was cleared of both staff and visitors taking part in a tour.

“Merseyside Police can confirm officers are in attendance following security concerns at Anfield Stadium today,” a police spokesman said.

“As a precautionary measure, the club has evacuated the stadium and officers are now carrying out enquiries at the scene.”

Liverpool later confirmed to Omnisport that the ground had been evacuated out of precaution

“There is an incident at Anfield. As a precautionary measure, the facility has been evacuated,” a spokesman stated.

“Our priority is to ensure the safety and well-being of everyone at the ground.

“The emergency services aware of the situation.”
