Anfield – The bane of visiting teams in the Premier League

Liverpool are not leaving anything to chance in their quest to defend the Premier League title and are doing themselves a lot of good by making Anfield the major fortress in the Premier League.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have been phenomenal at home in the Premier League even in the absence of fans and it would seem foolhardy for anyone to bet against them in a Premier League home game presently.

Liverpool are tied on points at the top with Tottenham Hotspur on 24 points after they thrashed Wolves 4 nil at Anfield on Sunday night and sit second in the Premier League.

The Reds have continued their incredible domestic form in the Premier League despite the injuries to some key players in the team in recent times.

Anfield is a fortress! Jurgen Klopp’s reign has seen the ground become the bane of every visiting Premier League team regardless of the form guide.

It’s a no-brainer that the ground produces one of the most electrifying atmospheres when fans are available.

This hasn’t been the case since the COVID-19 pandemic. Even at that, it has remained a fortress. However, as they gradually start allowing fans into stadiums, the electrifying atmosphere in some grounds will return.

Unfortunately for Nuno Espirito Santo and his men, they were the victims of the effects of fans at Anfield as a specific number was allowed in for the game. The result? A 4 nil trouncing of the visiting side!

Stats released by Opta show that Liverpool have won 31 games and drawn just one out of their last 32 home games. In that period, they’ve scored 93 goals and conceded just 25.

The Reds score an average of 3 goals at Anfield and concede once per game on average.

This is a ridiculous stat! This ruthlessness at home has further stretched their unbeaten run to 65 games and there are no signs of them slowing down.

The Reds showed signs of faltering at some point this season but have gotten back to their best.

They now have their eyes on the defense of the title although this won’t be easy as other teams are ready for a fight. We’ll see how the title race goes this term but Anfield is the fortress of the Premier League.
