As part of plans to commemorate Remembrance weekend, the match-worn jerseys will then be given to the charity, which supports British troops and veterans of the armed forces.

A minutes' silence will also be held prior to kick-off, while Liverpool will host a pre-match bucket collection for the Royal British Legion and have donated perimeter board advertising and an article in the matchday programme to the Poppy Appeal.

Reds captain Steven Gerrard told the club's website: "Everybody has the greatest respect for the members of those involved in the armed forces, and their families.

"It's important that the players and the fans have the opportunity to pay their respects together at Anfield this weekend.

"I'd like to thank all of the Liverpool fans who are currently serving in the armed forces for the amazing work they do."
