The club became embroiled in a row last year over its plan to host major music concerts at the famous ground - and was accused of leaving local people behind.
After an awkward defeat at Liverpool Town Hall, Reds bosses have moved to address some of the concerns of their closest neighbours around matches and other major events at Anfield.
But recent news that the Reds will submit a new planning application to expand the Anfield Road End beyond the 6,000 extra seats that had been planned has worried people living nearby.
'We feel like we are getting hemmed in'
Angela McKay is a very well known face around Anfield.
She runs the hugely popular Homebaked community bakery and land trust in Oakfield Road, just a stone's throw from Liverpool's home ground.
But if she works close to Anfield, she lives even closer.
She explained: "I live on Skerries Road, at the Anfield Road end - so obviously I am concerned about the stadium expansion plans.
"My real concern is the actual highway, how is that going to be on match days? - and lighting, if it is a big building again it will affect what daylight we get.
"It does affect your home life - it will affect us again on Skerries because of how the traffic will go.
"I feel like we are getting hemmed in a bit."
Angela was one of the residents who spoke at the council planning meeting last year when locals forced the Reds to amend their plans for hosting major concerts this summer.
She added: "The concerts - up until 11.30pm there were people lined up waiting for coaches outside the house - and I know it is marshalling and keeping people safe but it does have an effect.
"We don't want to moan, but the streets were shut down two days before the concerts so it does have a big effect.
"I have got no problem with the business, they bring a lot of people in - as the manager at Homebaked we get some of that trade and that footfall - but the idea of bringing more people in is a real concern."
'You have not fixed what is broken'
Another local resident has spoken regularly to the ECHO since the concert-row of last year, but asked to remain anonymous.
She said she has been pleased to see improvements from the club around match days and the gigs - including a larger clean up operation, drop in information sessions and a dedicated resident liaison officer to hear concerns.
But for this resident - who has lived close to the stadium for 60 years - the job of supporting local people is not finished - and now there are plans to bring more people in.
She said: "They haven't fully fixed the problems that they said they would - they have tried, but it isn't sorted - so I'm not sure they should be looking to do this when those problems haven't been fully dealt with.
"We still have people coming around to our gardens to urinate, we still have big problems with the roads - and now they want to bring even more people in?
"We want a big meeting with all the local residents before this moves on at all - the next thing we know it will all be done and dusted and approved."
She added: "We want to know how big it will be and how they will cope with all those extra people coming here.
"My message to Liverpool would be 'you have not fixed what is broken - no one wants to stop people having a good time, but please think about us'."
Anfield rail link is 'essential'
He was one of a number of city councillors to support residents in the row over the concerts - and says he understands the fresh concerns.
He said: "I think people absolutely have valid points with regards to issues like traffic and pollution.
"These are issues we are trying to address with the club and working closely with fan groups - it's definitely getting better, but it's far from perfect."
Cllr Byrne is also the officer manager of Walton MP Dan Carden - both he and his boss believe the most essential move to make regarding these issues and the wider development of the entire area would be to create a new local rail link.
He said: "The traffic is unsustainable at the moment - and I think what we all have to push for is a new train link.
"I think giving people the facility to get straight to a match and leave their cars at home would be transformational.
"And it would be transformational for the economy here too - you will be able to get people easily across the city for events, jobs and other things. It would link the whole city, north and south."
He added: "It would be fundamental for the area and could cut down on the traffic and pollution issues, particularly when the stadium expands."
"Residents are absolutely right to ask the city and the club, if the stadium does extend, what are the transport plans?"
What Liverpool say
The Reds' chief operating officer Andy Hughes said: “The progress that has been made during ongoing feasibility studies has resulted in us being in a position to allow the outline planning permission to lapse. We are committed to working with local residents, planning officials and others as we now focus on the detail behind any proposed redevelopment for Anfield Road.
“Throughout this process we have been clear that our objective is to find the best possible solution for Anfield Road and that remains the case."
