Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp asserted on Friday that Anfield has become a daunting challenge for opposing teams, solidifying itself as a fortress for the Reds.
Following a resounding 4-0 victory against LASK in the Europa League, Liverpool has achieved a perfect record of 10 wins in 10 home games this season, with an impressive tally of 31 goals.
The last time Liverpool suffered a home defeat was in February, when Real Madrid secured a 5-2 win in the Champions League. Domestically, Liverpool's unbeaten streak at home extends over a year, with their last loss dating back to October 2022. Despite a challenging campaign last season, Liverpool has demonstrated dominance by winning 18 and drawing three of their last 21 home Premier League games.
Klopp emphasised the significance of making Anfield a challenging venue for opponents, stating that playing there should be a nightmare for visiting teams. He acknowledges that, while this strategy doesn't always work, the fervour of Liverpool's fans can make a massive difference.
Looking ahead to Fulham's visit to Anfield on Sunday, Klopp acknowledged the dreamlike experience for players competing at Anfield while highlighting the Reds' efforts to make it a nightmare for the opposition.
Although Liverpool will be without first-choice goalkeeper Alisson Becker due to injury, Klopp expresses confidence in his understudy, Caoimhin Kelleher, who delivered a solid performance against LASK. Klopp assured Kelleher that he has his trust and will have the opportunity to showcase his skills in upcoming games.
Liverpool currently sits third in the Premier League, just two points behind leaders Arsenal, as they aim to continue their strong home form and pursue the top spot in the league standings.
