Liverpool have a chance to keep the pressure on Manchester City this weekend as the Reds host Burnley at Anfield in what should be a relatively straightforward fixture.
Even though a few draws have dampened the mood at Anfield, we are unbeaten in our last 35 home games in the Premier League and have a chance to equal a record set by bitter rivals Manchester United between 1998 and 2000.
During that period, the Mancs went 36 games unbeaten in what remains their best unbeaten run at home in the Premier League era. There have actually only been two other clubs that have gone better.
Between 2010 and 2012, Manchester City went 37 games unbeaten at home, and, between 2004 and 2008, Chelsea went a mind-boggling 86 home games without defeat.
A realistic target for the Reds is to first beat United’s record and then go for City’s; the run in for the league title should serve as enough inspiration to push the lads on.
We’d quite like to see the Reds go the remainder of the season without losing a single game (home and away) as it’ll maximise our chances of bringing the title back to Anfield!
We dropped points against Everton last week, but Klopp’s men now have to take chance to keep the pressure on City.
Keep going, Reds!
