Liverpool 68-game unbeaten home run End, Burnely won at Anfield since 1974

Liverpool's 68-games unbeaten home run End as Burnley won in 47 years at Anfield stadium, stats.

 Liverpool's 68-game unbeaten home run in the Premier League came to an end as Ashley Barnes fired in a late winner from the penalty spot to secure a famous victory for Burnley.

Barnes was fired in the box by goalie Alisson with seven minutes left and turned the spot-kick as Burnley secured Anfield for the first time since 1974. 

Liverpool's last league defeat of its own came about four years back, to Crystal Palace in April 2017, and now it's six points behind Manchester United in the halfway point of the season. 

After 19 rounds, Liverpool is out of form and out of faith, unable to hit the net in their last 440 minutes of top-flight play and seeking their first league win in 2021. 

Burnley, Liverpool's, home games, unbeaten run, first Victory, 47 years, 1974. History, Stats.

Burnley end Liverpool's 68 games home unbeaten run, first Victory in 47 years. History, Stats.

Liverpool won 18 of the 19 league games in Anfield when they battled for the championship in the last term.

 Burnley's second Premier League win away against the reigning champions (also v Chelsea in August 2017). Indeed, since the 2017-18 season, Burnley are the only side with two away league wins over the reigning English champions.

Liverpool have gone four league games without scoring for the first time since May 2000. The Reds have had a total of 87 shots since Sadio Mane's 12th-minute strike against West Brom, 25 days ago.

First time a Jurgen Klopp side has gone four league games without scoring since his Mainz side did so in the Bundesliga from November to December 2006.

Liverpool have gone five Premier League games without a win (D3 L2) for only the second time under Klopp (also from Jan-Feb 2017).

Liverpool have conceded two penalty goals at Anfield in this season's Premier League (also Sander Berge for Sheff Utd); they had only conceded two penalty goals at the ground under Klopp before 2020-21.

Liverpool had 27 shots without scoring against Burnley, the most they have had in a single league match without finding the net since April 2013 v Reading (28), and most at Anfield since April 2012 v West Brom (30).

Ashley Barnes' penalty for Burnley was his first away goal in the Premier League in 11 appearances on the road, since netting against Watford back in November 2019.

Since the start of last season, no goalkeeper has made more saves against a single opponent in the Premier League than Burnley's Nick Pope against Liverpool (19). Pope has made 14 saves in his last two games at Anfield, including six tonight.
