Liverpool set new record for unbeaten league games at Anfield
✳ Liverpool 3 Leicester 0
✳ Leeds 0 Arsenal 0
Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | Liverpool have set a new, all-time club record for consecutive home league games unbeaten after stretching their current streak to 64 on Sunday.
A Jonny Evans own goal was added to by Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino to secure three points and a piece of history.
This Reds team have now moved clear of the previous best – 63 successive league matches without a loss at Anfield under Bob Paisley between 1978 and 1981.
The reigning champions have won 53 and drawn 11 of those 64 games, scoring 169 goals and conceding 42 for a total of 170 points.
Klopp has used 40 different players during this streak, compared to the 20 selected by Paisley over the course of the run he masterminded – which, by a quirk of fate, was ended by Leicester.
Earlier, Nicolas Pepe was sent off for the first time in his career but Arsenal stood firm to secure a point at Elland Road.
The Ivory Coast winger saw red early in the second half following an off-the-ball clash with Ezgjan Alioski.
Arsenal were forced back after that but stout defending, the woodwork and fine goalkeeping from Bernd Leno kept Leeds at bay.
