Anfield has become a fortress for Liverpool over the last three years and their home record has helped them go 22 points clear at the top of the table.

Their 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace in April 2017 was the last time Liverpool fans saw their team lose at home in the Premier League.

We’ve looked at the nine players who have played more than 10 league games at Anfield for Liverpool and still remain unbeaten.

Alisson Becker

Alisson’s first trip to Anfield resulted in a heavy defeat, as he conceded five goals in Roma’s 5-2 defeat to Liverpool in 2018.

The 27-year-old still did enough to impress Jurgen Klopp, however, and Liverpool spent £65million to sign the goalkeeper a few months later.

Alisson has definitely preferred being in the home dressing room at Anfield, winning 26 and drawing two of his 28 league games at the famous stadium.

Virgil van Dijk

Van Dijk has been instrumental to Liverpool’s recent transformation and the defender is widely regarded as the best centre-back in the world.

The 28-year-old signed from Southampton for £75million in 2018, but he has been worth every penny and won 35 of his 39 league games at Anfield.

Andy Robertson

After a difficult start following his move from Hull City in 2017, Robertson has established himself as a pivotal part of Klopp’s plans at Liverpool.

The left-back has made 44 league appearances at Anfield over the past two and a half years, winning 38 and drawing the other six games.

Fabinho

Fabinho has made 22 league appearances at Anfield over the past 18 months and the Brazilian has been on the winning side 21 times.

Liverpool’s 1-1 draw against Leicester City in 2019 is the only home league game they haven’t won when Fabinho has been involved.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Oxlade-Chamberlain moved to the Reds from Arsenal in 2017, but injury problems have disrupted his Liverpool career and limited him to 26 league appearances at Anfield.

The midfielder has helped Liverpool pick up 60 points out of a possible 78 from those games as they won 20 and drew the other six.

Naby Keita

Keita arrived at Liverpool in 2018 with big expectations, but the 25-year-old has struggled to nail down a starting spot in their midfield three.

He has only made 16 league appearances at Anfield in one and a half years, but they have won all but two of those games.

Xherdan Shaqiri

Shaqiri has struggled to break into the Liverpool team after signing from Stoke City in 2018, making only 15 league appearances at Anfield.

However, the winger has never let Klopp down when he has been selected as they have won 14 out of those 15 games.

Mohamed Salah

After signing from Roma in 2017, the winger has made half a century of league appearances at Anfield, winning 41 and drawing nine games.

Salah also has an incredible goalscoring record at their home stadium, registering 45 goals in those 50 league games.

The only time Salah has played in a Liverpool league defeat at Anfield was when he helped Chelsea to a 2-0 win over his current side in 2014.

Sadio Mane

Mane has been at Liverpool longer than any other player on this list, but the winger missed their two home league defeats in 2016-17 through injury and international commitments.

The 27-year-old has played in 59 home league fixtures for Liverpool, winning 50 and drawing the other nine.
