Liverpool look to avoid consecutive defeats at home
Liverpool host big-spending Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala at Anfield in their Europa League Group 'A' clash today with the English Premier league side seeking to avoid making unwanted history
A 3-2 defeat to Udinese in Merseyside on matchday two leaves Brendan Rodgers’ men staring at the possibility of consecutive home defeats in Europe for the first time in the club’s existence.
Undefeated in eight European fixtures this season, Anzhi will pose a serious threat to a Liverpool side that only secured their first home league win of the campaign on Saturday.
“The biggest thing for me is maintaining the hunger he’s got now because he can be a really top player. It’s a long way to go for him but at the moment he’s been a revelation,” said Rodgers.
