Martin Moran, of Greater Anglia, said: "We know this match is very important to many of our customers, which is why we’re running additional trains.

"We want to make it as easy as possible for people to attend, and there will be extra members of staff helping people with their journeys.

"To save time and beat the queues, passengers are advised to buy tickets online or via the Greater Anglia app before they travel.

"Our new trains are longer and have more seats, however we would ask everyone to be patient while boarding as we are expecting higher than usual passenger numbers on these services."

A Greater Anglia spokesperson said that passengers should use the full length of trains and platforms.
