Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has challenged his side to protect their unbeaten Anfield record as they look to seal a fifth placed finish in the Barclays Premier League.

With European qualification high on the list of priorities, the Reds have seen a resurgence of form since the January return of 'King Kenny' back to his spiritual home.

Liverpool have won five and drawn three of the eight home matches played under Dalglish's stewardship, a vast contrast to their poor early season form which saw them languishing towards the bottom end of the table.

But with the Reds back firing on all cylinders, entry into next season's Europa League is now within touching distance.

And Dalglish believes that maintaining their home form will go a long way to ensuring Liverpool are exactly where they need to be next campaign – competing amongst Europe's elite.


Historically, Anfield has always been a fortress for the great Liverpool sides during their title winning years.

"It has always been a difficult place for any team to come and get a result," Dalglish said.

"We'll just continue on that tradition and hopefully we can stretch it even further and go on and get some more wins."

The latest in the list of home scalps came in the form of Manchester City, who were emphatically defeated 3-0 in Monday's league encounter, representing Liverpool's best performance during Dalglish's recent tenure.

Next up for Liverpool is a trip to the Emirates Stadium where they take on Arsenal in Sunday's late kick-off, with the Reds looking for a first win there in the last fourteen attempts.
