Supporters' groups organised the first walk-out in Anfield's 132-year history in the 77th minute of today's match against Sunderland after a £77 match ticket (up from £59) and a £1,000 season ticket were announced this week.

The club have argued the new structure - which includes 45 per cent of match tickets decreasing in price, 64 per cent of season tickets reduced or staying the same in cost, better availability for local fans and around 1,500 £9 tickets for category C games - offers greater accessibility and affordability.

But Liverpool fans have stood firm and today spoke with their feet as thousands poured out of the stands with their team 2-0 up against Sunderland.

And it seems their support was missed as the Black Cats scored in the 82nd minute through Adan Johnson before Jermain Defoe snatched a late equaliser a minute from time.

Roberto Firmino had given Jurgen Klopp's side the lead after 59 minutes and Adam Lallana added a second after 70 minutes.
