Liverpool fans slam Arsenal prices

Hopes of ticket prices for Liverpool's FA Cup tie at Arsenal being reduced have been dashed by officials at the Emirates.

Liverpool supporters' group Spirit of Shankly had called for a reduction in the cost of the tickets for the fifth-round match, citing prices from when Brendan Rodgers' side lost 2-0 in the Premier League in November.

They have also called for an earlier kick off. The league match started at 5.30pm -- causing problems with public transport and supporters unable to get back to Liverpool the same evening. 

"The league game saw Liverpool fans charged 62 pounds to 93 pounds per ticket for a fixture played on a Saturday evening," the group announced. "The cost of the match along with the late kick-off saw many fans priced out and for those who went there were many difficulties using public transport to get home."

The supporters' group had suggested prices should match those paid by Coventry City fans in Friday's fourth-round tie, which were around the 25 pound mark.

But an Arsenal spokesman told BBC Sport the upcoming match "would almost certainly be classed as a Category A or B match", with a lowest potential ticket price of 35 pounds.

The club added that they hope to have ticket prices and a kick off time announced by the end of this month. In January last year, Liverpool fans displayed banners at the Emirates protesting about the cost of attending the match.
