The Reds have won 37 of their last 40 Premier League matches at Anfield, drawing the others

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says that there is no “secret recipe” to Liverpool’s incredible success at home.

A formidable record at Anfield underpinned their maiden Premier League title in the 2019-20 campaign and continued as they opened the new term on Merseyside with a victory over Leeds.

On Monday they will play host to Arsenal, having taken a staggering 114 points from the last possible 120 at home, including 37 wins and three draws from four matches.

Former Borussia Dortmund trainer Klopp, however, insists that it is not something that he actively hopes to achieve.

“The only time I think about that number is when someone asks me about it and once I’ve answered the question, I forget it immediately because I am absolutely not interested,” he said. “We did what we did. We try to win football games and we’ve done that at home in different circumstances, at night time, lunchtime, with supporters, without supporters.

“It is our home and we feel really well there but it is no secret recipe what we have – we never expect to lose but we don’t expect to win.

“It is just we know we have to work and we want to deserve three points, that’s what we want. That is it, pretty much.”

Liverpool preserved their remarkable home streak against Leeds on matchday one of the Premier League season, with Mohamed Salah’s hat-trick and a further goal from Virgil van Dijk getting them the points.

They have started the campaign in a strong fashion, having followed that result up with a 2-0 win away to Chelsea, in which two goals from Sadio Mane gave them the points as Thiago Alcantara made his debut for the club.

On Monday, they are back at home once more, with Arsenal the visitors. Their ranks have been further boosted by the arrival of Wolves striker Diogo Jota for the visit of the Gunners.

Klopp’s side have lost their last couple against the London outfit, including a defeat on penalties in the Community Shield a month ago. At home, however, they have picked up four successive league wins against their rivals, scoring 15 goals in the process while conceding only three.
