Liverpool have won their last three Premier League home meetings with Leeds United, netting 10 goals in the process. They last won more consecutively against them at Anfield in the league between 1973 and 1978 (a run of six).
Virgil van Dijk has never lost a Premier League home match for Liverpool, winning 50 and drawing eight of his 58 appearances at Anfield with the Reds in the competition. If he plays and Liverpool avoid defeat, it will equal Lee Sharpe’s Manchester United record for most Premier League home matches at a specific club without ever losing (59 – W47 D12).
Jurgen Klopp’s side are the only team unbeaten at home in the Premier League this season (W9 D3), and have conceded a league-low seven goals at Anfield so far this term.
Leeds have lost both Premier League encounters with Liverpool in a season on four previous occasions (1996/97, 1997/98, 1999/00 and 2002/03). Only in 1996/97 did the Whites fail to score in either meeting.
