Ben Twelves 4 May 2017
Liverpool have rediscovered the art of grinding out victory to secure vital successes on the road, and Jurgen Klopp’s side must now replicate this ability to win ugly at Anfield.
The wins were as delightful as they were vital, but most pleasing was the manner they arrived, with Klopp’s men proving they can win ugly when required.
Such results have been dug out on the road throughout the season, but at Anfield, it’s been a different story.
All or nothing at Anfield
Liverpool have been solid if unspectacular at home this season, with 11 wins, four draws and two losses from 17 games making for the Premier League’s fourth-best home record.
In most of those games the Reds have blitzed opponents on the way to securing three points.
But on the occasions an alternative route to victory has needed to be found – mostly against less-fancied sides – Liverpool have too regularly been foiled and dropped valuable points.
