Sadio Mane And Liverpool Look To Extend Premier League Unbeaten Runs At Anfield

Liverpool FC v Arsenal FC - Premier League

On Saturday, Liverpool plays Newcastle at Anfield and are looking to extend their unbeaten home run in the Premier League to 43 games.

The last time Liverpool lost a game at home in the Premier League was April 23, 2017, when Crystal Palace won 2-1. During the run of 42 Premier League games at Anfield, Liverpool have won 32 and drawn 10. They have scored 110 goals, conceded 21 while recording 26 clean sheets.

The Premier League record of most games unbeaten at home is held by Chelsea. It was Liverpool that ended a remarkable 86 game run back in 2008.

Of the 18 player squad named against Crystal Palace less than half – eight, in fact – are still in the first team squad.

One player who missed the game was Sadio Mane. On Saturday, Mane has the chance to hit a pretty unique milestone. Mane has appeared in 49 Premier League games for Liverpool at Anfield and has yet to taste the bitter pill of defeat. He even avoided defeat playing for Southampton in his one Anfield appearance before his 2016 transfer!

Mane’s striking partner, Mo Salah, is also on the same run but has played 8 games fewer than Mane. Salah has been on the winning side 32 times with 9 games drawn.

Former Chelsea center back Alex held the Premier League record before Sane passed him and if Salah plays and Liverpool maintain its run then he will move ahead of Alex’s tally of 41 games.

Andy Robertson’s unbeaten run at Anfield in Liverpool colors extends to all competitions with 34 wins and 7 draws. However, he did lose on his one appearance against Liverpool at Anfield when he played for Hull City.

More stats and facts

Liverpool’s run at home is currently the longest unbeaten stretch in the Premier League, the Bundesliga, La Liga, Serie A and Ligue 1.

The last team to win at Anfield in any competition was Chelsea almost one year ago in the Carabao Cup.

Liverpool have won their last 13 Premier League matches. Manchester City hold the record with 18 straight wins.

The season is only a few games old but Liverpool is the only team in the Premier League with a 100% record after 4 games. Spotless records are already scarce around Europe’s big 5 leagues. Atletico in La Liga and RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga have both played 3, won 3. Serie A is only 2 games in but only Inter, Torino, and Juventus have collected a full 6 points.

Former Manchester United center back Jaap Stam, 40 games at Old Trafford, and Arjen Robben 35 games at Stamford Bridge during his time at Chelsea are 4th and 5th in the record book.
