Chelsea’s unbeaten home record remains intact after Burnley’s shock 1-0 victory over Liverpool at Anfield on Thursday night.
Liverpool had not suffered a league defeat at Anfield since Christian Benteke’s double brought about a 2-1 defeat by Crystal Palace in April 2017.
The defeat to Burnley ended Liverpool’s 68-game unbeaten run at home in the Premier League.
This ensured Chelsea’s unbeaten home record which lasted between March 2004 and October 2008 and saw us unbeaten for 86 league games is maintained.
Claudio Ranieri’s final weeks as Chelsea boss saw the beginning of the run, before a vibrant Jose Mourinho arrived and ensured we never lost a home game during his era as boss.
Our brilliant unbeaten home record continued after Avram Grant replaced Mourinho as Chelsea boss but the run ended three months after Luiz Felipe Scolari took charge of Chelsea courtesy of a deflected Xabi Alonso winner for Liverpool in October 2008.
