Liverpool TEAMtalk

Liverpool set a new club record when they extended their unbeaten run at Anfield to 64 games with a 3-0 win against Leicester on Sunday, yet Sadio Mane’s boasts an even more impressive record on home soil.

Mane was injured when Liverpool last home at Premier League game on home soil against Crystal Palace on 23 April, 2017, some 1310 days ago.

He was also missing in the only other home defeat Liverpool have suffered during his time at the club, a 3-2 loss against Swansea in January 2017.

It means the Senegal forward has never been part of a Liverpool side that have lost a Premier League game at Anfield, with his personal unbeaten record now standing a remarkable 71 matches.

No player in Premier League history has compiled an unbeaten run at one stadium to compare to Mane’s, with his team-mate Mohamed Salah second on the list, with his record of 61 games unbeaten in league games at Anfield similarly as impressive.

Brazilian defender Alex is next on the list after he compiled a 41-game unbeaten run with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, while defender Jaap Stam went 40 games without losing at Old Trafford during his time at Manchester United.

Yet Mane’s record looks set to stand the test of time and he will look to extend it further when Liverpool take on Wolves in their next Premier League home game on December 5.

Klopp’s reaction to 64-match unbeaten record

Klopp Firmino TEAMtalk

“My problem is that at the moment I’ve spoken so much about football that I’m only thinking about the next game,” said Jurgen Klopp.

“But there will be a moment in the future when I think back and hopefully the number will not be 64 but more.

“It is absolutely incredible, but it’s all about the boys. It’s really difficult to achieve something like this when you think about how tight a lot of the games were and the boys had to dig in.

“We really enjoy playing here, it is our ground, our home, everything feels like home even when the people aren’t there – which is absolutely b******s and b*******, it doesn’t feel right but we have to do it.

“The boys on the pitch performance-wise are incredible and that is the only reason for the number.

“It is tricky to set records at this club because our fathers and grandfathers were obviously pretty good.

“I am happy for the players but it doesn’t feel like this in the moment because we play on Wednesday (against Atalanta at home in the Champions League).”
