Liverpool equal all-time club record with 63rd straight unbeaten league home match


Salah Liverpool West Ham 2020

Liverpool have matched their all-time club record for unbeaten home league matches with their 2-1 win over West Ham at Anfield on Saturday.

The Hammers took an early lead throughPablo Fornals but Mohamed Salah equalised with a penalty just before half-time before Diogo Jota scored an 85th-minute winner to secure all three points for the Reds.

The victory stretched Liverpool's unbeaten league run at Anfield to63 matches (W52, D11), with their lastPremier League defeat at home coming in April 2017 when they fell 2-1 to Crystal Palace behind a brace from their former strikerChristian Benteke.

That run of 63 games has matched Liverpool's previous record, which was set in December 1980. Chelsea hold the all-time English top-flight record for consecutive unbeaten league home matches, with their 86-game run coming to an end in 2008.

The defending Premier League champions have endured a difficult start to the 2020-21 seasondespite moving into first placewith the win against West Ham.

Injuries to key defenders such as Joel Matip, Fabinho, and Virgil van Dijk, as well as goalkeeper Alisson, have hampered Jurgen Klopp's side in the back, with the inexperiencedNatPhillips handed the start at centre-back on Saturday against the Hammers.

Though they have won five of their seven Premier League games thus far in 2020-21, Liverpool have conceded 15 goals in those seven matches after it took them 23 games to concede the same total last year.

Only Aston Villa in 1897-98 (17) conceded more goals in their first seven league matches as a reigning top-flight champion than Liverpool this season.

Liverpool have conceded the first goal in three of their four home league games this season - as many times as they did in all 19 league matches at Anfield last term. However, Klopp's men have recovered to win all three of those matches, becoming only the second side in Premier League history to pull off such a feat after Blackburn in November 2009.
