Liverpool’s unbeaten home run: ‘best Liverpool team in history’

Liverpool have been performing great lately with a stellar performance on Tuesday against Red Bull Salzburg in the Champions League group stages and the victory wrapped up qualification to the knockout rounds. Currently, the Reds are unbeaten in their home stadium for two years now.

Jurgen Klopp has made Anfield a fortress, where legendary teams come to their demise. Unfortunately, this also led to Everton boss Marco Silva’s dismissal as well. After many verdicts supporting Liverpool, the pressure was mounting on Everton and they collapsed underneath it, possibly due to a weak central mid-field. Not soon after, Silva was sacked.

Although things are pretty downcast for Everton, the same certainly can’t be said for Liverpool. In fact, ‘This could be the best Liverpool team in HISTORY – they have no weaknesses’, says diehard Reds fan Micky Quinn. Especially so when Liverpool took another step in their quest to defend their Champions League title as they beat Red Bull Salzburg 2-0 in Austria to book their place in the last-16.

It was a huge result for the Reds who would have exited the competition had they lost but ended up topping their group after coming through this latest test of their champion credentials. Now, they’re favourites for the Champions League and Premier League.

Although the star striker has gathered many fans as it is, Stephen Warnock was especially left drooling over attacker Sadio Mane after his impressive performance for Liverpool on Tuesday night. The 27-year-old helped his team win 2-0 away to Red Bull Salzburg in the Champions League group stages and the victory wrapped up qualification to the knockout rounds.

Mane was reinstated to the starting XI by manager Klopp and he previously had a successful spell at Salzburg, scoring 45 goals in 87 matches for them earlier in his career. “I though Mane was superb. He looked fresh tonight, looked hungry, wanted to come back here show to the fans what a good player he is now and how much he’s improved”.

Now, the club are not only through in Europe, but they are also pushing to win their first English league title for almost 30 years as they sit eight points clear at the top of the Premier League table. The Reds look like they are charging towards a Premier League title after 15 wins and a draw from their opening 16 top-flight games, while in Europe it’s going to take a mighty effort for someone to stop them.

The Reds do have a challenging match up ahead of Boxing day versus Leicester City. Former Premier League defender Martin Keown is wary of the threat that Leicester City poses – and has outlined how they have amassed their impressive streak of wins ahead of their Boxing Day clash with Liverpool. If they keep up this momentum, they may finally be able to dethrone the Reds.
