14 Liverpool first-team stars have never lost a Premier League game at Anfield

Liverpool have undoubtedly been one of the best teams in Europe over the last two seasons.

After years of transfers and tinkering with his squad, Jurgen Klopp has made the Merseysiders a European powerhouse again.

The German guided the Reds to Champions League glory in the 2018-19 season, beating their Premier League rivals Tottenham in the final.

And Klopp, who recently celebrated his five-year anniversary at Anfield, ended the club’s 30-year wait to lift the league title last season – further etching his name into the club’s history books.

Fourteen Liverpool players have yet to taste defeat at Anfield

Over the last two seasons, Liverpool have been imperious form in the league – in particular at Anfield.

In fact, Klopp and his troops have made Anfield a fortress for the last three-and-half years – with their last league defeat coming at the hands of Crystal Palace in April 2017.

Since that defeat to the Eagles, Liverpool have won 53 of their 64 home league matches.

It’s been an extremely interesting start to the season for Jurgen Klopp’s men.

They got their title defence off to a shaky start as they edged out a seven-goal thriller against Leeds, before going on to conceded seven in a hammering by Aston Villa.

Virgil van Dijk’s season was ended by injury in the 2-2 draw at Everton, leaving the title favourites looking far less secure at the back – especially with Alisson’s injury worries too.

But there’s no slowing down in what is going to be a busy campaign – with Klopp ensuring his men continue at full pace as they bid for more title glory.

And 14 of Liverpool’s current squad have yet to taste defeat at Anfield.

Alisson Becker, Adrian, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson, Fabinho, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keita , Xherdan Shaqiri, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Taki Minamino, Neco Williams, Curtis Jones and Diogo Jota have yet to lose a league game on the hallowed Anfield turf.

Some of the names on that list – Minamino and Jota – shouldn’t come as a huge surprise given their short stints at the club.

But the fact the likes of Salah, Van Dijk and Mane haven’t lost at Anfield in the league is a testament to how imperious the Merseysiders have been at home during the second-half of Klopp’s reign.
