Jugan Klopp sets 40-year-old Bob Paisley’s record in Liverpool’s win over West Ham

Jugan Klopp equaled the record set by Liverpool legend Bob Paisley 40 years ago when the Reds beat West Ham 2-1 on Saturday evening.

Avoiding the defeat against the Hammers, the Reds’ unbeaten run in the Premier League at Anfield increased to 63 games – Paisley’s score remained unbeaten between 1978 and 1980.

While Paisley oversaw an unbeaten run, Liverpool won back-to-back in the First Division.

Klopp is hoping for a similar achievement as his team’s goal is to defend this season’s Premier League title.

Liverpool have been stupid at home since the Germans took over five years ago and you haven’t lost a league game at Anfield since April 2017, when they were sunk by Crystal Palace.

The Reds had to come from behind to beat the Irons when Pablo Fornells opened the scoring with a foul on a poor clean-up by Gomez.

But Mohamed Salah pulled Liverpool level before half-time, breaking a penalty in the middle after being fouled in the box by Arthur Masuaku.

And the Reds took the lead in the second half with just a few minutes left, as substitute Dogo Jota scored a few goals after which he saw TAR cancel.

Klopp’s goal is to break the record he set with West Ham as Liverpool welcomed Leicester City to Anfield after an international break.
