This weekend Manchester City tried again but again they were reminded, you simply cannot beat Liverpool at Anfield. The Reds have not tasted defeat on home turf in the league in over two years. In fact, Liverpool boast the longest unbeaten home run in Europe’s top five leagues.
The last time the Reds lost a game in the league at Anfield was in April 2017. Jürgen Klopp’s side went ahead through Philippe Coutinho before Christian Benteke scored twice to give Crystal Palace a 2-1 victory.
Since then Liverpool have embarked on a 46 game unbeaten streak in the Premier League. At the minute, Jürgen Klopp’s side are 40 games shy of the incredible 86 match unbeaten streak at Stamford Bridge.
As it stands, the Reds have the longest unbeaten home run in Europe’s top leagues but not overall. Klopp’s men’s Champions League rivals Red Bull Salzburg currently hold the record across the continent. The Austrian side haven’t lost at home in the Austrian top flight in 51 games. Red Star Belgrade are second in the table on 48 games without loss.
The best of the rest in Europe’s top leagues is Juventus. The Italian giants haven’t been beaten at home in 29 games.
This impressive statistic is testament to the might of Jürgen Klopp and the incredible transformation he has enacted at Liverpool. Before the German gaffer arrived we were unpredictable and inconsistent. Whilst the Reds made Anfield something of a fortress during the 2013/14 season under Brendan Rodgers, we were still prone to errors at the back – we would still get beat at home. Klopp has made Anfield impenetrable. Our next home game in the league is Brighton, they don’t stand a chance.
