Liverpool's unbeaten Anfield record compared to Premier League clubs is simply staggering

  • Kobe Tong

Liverpool have enjoyed a pretty successful start to the 2020/21 season.

That might sound like the most obvious statement of all time, but there's no denying that the Reds' slew of victories have been diluted by their leaky defence and the shocking 7-2 Aston Villa loss.

However, on the whole, you have to tip your hat to Liverpool as they occupy the Premier League summit despite, remarkably, having conceded the most goals in England's top flight.

Liverpool's strong start to 2020/21

That's not to mention the fact they've opened a Champions League campaign with three victories for the very first time by putting Ajax, Midtjylland and Atalanta to the sword in quick succession.

As a result, there's good reason to think that Liverpool are leading contenders both to retain their Premier League crown, but also to wrestle back the Champions League crown to boot.

And one of the biggest strings in the Liverpool bow is their impeccable record at Anfield, which seems to have been immune to all the chaos that has engulfed the 2020/21 campaign.


Liverpool's insane Anfield record

The Premier League, in particular, has seen a confusing smorgasbord of results with every team having already lost at least one game, but the Reds' home record remains largely unscathed.

In fact, Liverpool are continuing their course to overhaul Chelsea's unbeaten run at Stamford Bridge during the mid-2000s by way of having avoided a league defeat at Anfield since April 2017.

That's not to mention the fact Liverpool have won every single Premier League game on their own turf over the last two seasons aside from lone draws with Manchester City, Leicester City and Burnley.


Liverpool's record compared to the PL

Pretty astonishing, right? Well, their streak looks even crazier when you compared it to the other 19 teams occupying England's top flight because nobody gets vaguely close to Jurgen Klopp's men.

You can check out the full graphic down below, which borders on mind-blowing by way of showing that the closest any team comes to Liverpool's run is by way of avoiding defeat... in three games.


Oh. My. Goodness. Me.

Nobody close to Liverpool

If you want any clearer demonstration of the chaos that has been unfolding in the Premier League this season, you won't find it, because this shows that nearly everybody is beatable at home.

Leicester, Arsenal, Sheffield United, Burnley, Manchester United, Aston Villa and Leeds United don't even have a single unbeaten match to their name, while five clubs can only boast one.

Chelsea, Southampton, West Bromwich Albion and West Ham United boast a paltry tally of two and the trio of Everton, Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanders stand alone on three games.


That rather remarkably means that the closest any Premier League team comes to matching Liverpool's Anfield dominance is 60 fixtures, which is more than one and a half seasons.

So, even if the entire Premier League goes the rest of the season unbeaten at home, rest assured that it will do absolutely nothing to change Liverpool's relative dominance on their own patch.
