Only Eight Current Liverpool Players Have Lost A Premier League Game At Anfield
Liverpool's remarkable home form in the Premier League means only eight of their players have lost at Anfield in a domestic game.
The legendary stadium has become a fortress under Jurgen Klopp and their last league defeat came to Crystal Palace in April 2017, when a Cristian Benteke double saw them lose 2-1.
Klopp overall has lost four home games as Liverpool manager, with the three other defeats coming to Manchester United, Swansea City and Palace again.
Anfield Wrap have tweeted a list of players who are yet to taste defeat at home. Interestingly, Sadio Mane also never lost at Anfield during his stint as a Southampton player.

That means the eight players to have lost at Anfield are Trent Alexander-Arnold, Roberto Firmino, Jordan Henderson, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip, James Milner, Divock Origi and Georginio Wijnaldum.
Alexander-Arnold has coming off the bench in the 2017 Palace defeat as a blemish on his record.
Liverpool have now gone 64 games without a home loss, smashing their previous record set back in 1980.
It's a record that helped them to their first Premier League title and Klopp says he'll enjoy the record - at a later date.

"Look, my problem is that in the moment I spoke so much about football, I have so much to think about how we can play the next game and things like this," he said.
"So, it doesn't feel it. Maybe it's not right but there will be a moment, for sure, in the future when I think back - and hopefully it will be a different number and not only 64," he said after Sunday's 3-0 win over Leicester City per Goal.
"It's absolutely incredible, but it's all about the boys. It's really difficult to achieve something like this but when you think about how tight a lot of games were then it doesn't happen just like this. You have to really dig in for that and the boys did that.
"I said it a few times before, we really enjoy playing here. It's our ground, it's our home, everything feels home - even when the people are not here. It doesn't feel right but we have to do it and we are happy that we can play.
"So, what the boys put out there on the pitch performance-wise is absolutely incredible and it's the only reason for the number.
"Obviously it's pretty tricky and pretty difficult to set records for this incredible club because our fathers or grandfathers, they were obviously pretty good.
"So having this record now, I'm happy for the players but it doesn't feel like a big moment, to be honest, because we play on Wednesday [against Atalanta in the Champions League] and that's actually my only concern at the moment."
