64 games without losing at home, record of the ‘red’ team
MADRID, 22 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) –
Liverpool beat Leicester (3-0) this Sunday in the duel for the leadership of the Premier on matchday 9, a result with which the ‘red’ team beat its historical record for games without losing, a total of 64, to tie for the lead with Tottenham.
Jürgen Klopp’s men beat the ‘Foxes’, who lost that head of the league, in a historic clash for the reigning Premier League champions due to his streak at home, which beat the previous one in 1981. Even without an audience, Anfield remains territory prohibited for visitors.
Jonny Evans inadvertently helped the hosts with an own goal in the 20th minute, which was doubled before the break by the plugged Diogo Jota. The national team break did not sit well with Leicester, with no reaction to the defeat that Firmino sentenced in the 86th minute.
With the three points, Liverpool take the lead alongside Tottenham with 20 points, while Leicester remains at 18. Away from that high zone, Arsenal (13) had to settle for the goalless draw in Leeds, after play almost the entire second half with one less for the expulsion of Pepe.
In addition, Everton woke up from their crisis of a draw and three defeats with the victory (2-3) against Fulham to regain their pulse in the fight for the European zone.
