Liverpool were shocked last night as they were thrashed 2-0 by Atalanta in the Champions League – a surprise result considering they only recently won the away fixture 5-0.
Thus the Reds have lost at home by more than a one-goal margin for the first time in a competitive game under Jurgen Klopp.
According to Opta Joe, this represents an unwanted first for Klopp’s side, with this representing the German tactician’s heaviest home defeat in 137 matches.
It’s quite remarkable how good the Merseyside giants have been at home under Klopp, with the Reds still on a long unbeaten run at Anfield in the Premier League.
The last time the Premier League champions lost by more than a one-goal margin was a 3-0 home defeat to West Ham all the way back in 2015 when Brendan Rodgers was still in charge.
This kind of result is strange to Liverpool fans but with all their recent injuries it’s perhaps unsurprising that they’ve struggled to look quite as solid as they did last season.
