Jurgen Klopp has praised our much-improved home form ahead of our final home league game of the season against Chelsea on Wednesday night.

We haven’t lost at Anfield in any competition since we were beaten 1-0 by Stoke City in the second leg of the League Cup semi-final on January 26th. Since then, we’ve won eight and drawn four.

Now Klopp has admitted that it’s vital that we use home form as a platform for success.

“It’s very important. The difference is big. When I came here we had a few problems at home,” he said.

“We didn’t score often enough, the opponent didn’t need too many chances to score, and that was not too cool. We also had the set-piece issue.

“We created some stability, that’s the truth. We worked longer together, that helps, it always helps in life and football.

“Of course, if you can create atmospheres at Anfield like we did sometimes, then it should be a real force, a real strength, this stadium.

“Next year I’m really looking forward to the new stand and we have more people in the stadium – that will be great.

“To be successful it’s important that you win games and to use the advantage of a home game is the first step in the right direction.” (via official site).
