Liverpool already have their one hand on the Premier League trophy but three defeats in their last four matches rang an alarm bell for Jurgen Klopp’s men.
The reigning Champions League holder lost to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League 1st leg of the round of 16. They were also beaten 3-0 by Watford who produced a magical performance. Frank Lampard’s Chelsea also inflicted an FA Cup knockout on Liverpool.
But Liverpool made a comeback against Bournemouth at Anfield to win it 2-1. They dismissed all suggestions that the would-be champions were getting complacent and losing their focus. Salah and Mane made sure that Liverpool stay well on course for the Premier League title.
Liverpool’s win against Bournemouth at Anfield was their 22nd consecutive Premier League win at their home ground. They overtook the previous record of 21 home wins which was set in 1972 by Liverpool only.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have now set a new record in the top flight of English football. No other team has managed more consecutive home wins in the entire history of English top-flight football.
Liverpool are also unbeaten in their last 55 Premier League home matches. Chelsea went 86 home games without a defeat from 2004 to 2008. So this record is still a long way for Liverpool but considering their recent form it would be foolish to bet against Liverpool setting that record too.
They have now moved 25 points clear of Manchester City, who have played two games fewer. This means Liverpool can still clinch the Premier League title at the home of the defending champions on 5th April.
