Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp pinpoints Anfield factor ahead of Arsenal game

Liverpool hasn’t played at Anfield in almost a month, but if they wanted to make it a memorable “homecoming,” they couldn’t have asked for a more challenging job.

After losing their last three Premier League games by a combined score of 7-0, Jurgen Klopp’s underachievers make their first return to their historic stadium.

But, the Reds’ chances of earning another convincing victory are as slim as they come with Arsenal coming to town on Sunday.

Although they have a remarkable six-match winning streak over the Gunners at home, this is a different Arsenal team with Mikel Arteta aiming for the championship after a standout season.

With a 3-2 loss in the rematch at the Emirates Stadium, Liverpool could lose both regular-season league games against the London powerhouse for the first time since 2009/10.

Klopp believes the Anfield fans might still be a crucial element in this ominous-looking contest for his team, even though the visitors have the psychological advantage and are in much better shape going into this big game.

He stated on the club’s website during the buildup that “At least for a bit, we can mention, again, it’s Anfield.”

We’re now back at home, and we still need to show improvement and reaction after reaction after reaction.

“We’ll do that specifically on Sunday.”

In spite of their problems with uneven play and defensive errors, Liverpool has been a force to be reckoned with at Anfield, so Klopp’s assertions are not wholly false.

The Reds have gone undefeated in their final 12 home league games this season, with the exception of a 2-1 loss to relegation-threatened Leeds United in October. (W9, D3).

In addition, they have won their past three matches in the top division by an aggregate score of 11-0 after a scoreless draw with Chelsea in January, and they have yet to allow a Premier League goal at Anfield in 2023.

Because of this, even though current Liverpool club is no longer the powerful one that destroyed other Premier League teams in recent years, they are still very difficult to beat at home.

On the other hand, Arsenal has the power to quiet the echoing Anfield atmosphere.
