John Terry posted a message on social media after Liverpool’s defeat on Thursday night meant they fell short of an all-time Premier League record held by Chelsea. 

Liverpool went into Thursday night’s home fixture on a 68-game unbeaten run in the league at Anfield.

But Ashley Barnes’ second-half goal gave visitors Burnley a shock 1-0 win and ensured they were the first side to win at Anfield in the top-fight since 2017.

Jurgen Klopp’s Reds team have been formidable on their own patch, but the Merseyside club are going through a difficult period now in defence of their league crown. 

Former Chelsea captain and club legend Terry reacted on Instagram following the Liverpool loss, as he reminisced on a team he was once apart of.

 

Chelsea maintain the record for the longest unbeaten run at home in Premier League history with a 86-game unbeaten streak at Stamford Bridge, which took place between February 2004 and October 2008.

Liverpool have been almost untouchable at Anfield in recent years, but teams will now be traveling there with a sense of optimism again.

Chelsea’s side between 2004-08 were similarly dominating at home and being strong on your own ground will give you a great chance of being at the top end of the table. 

Frank Lampard, who was a key player in the Chelsea team that set that record, is now the manager at Stamford Bridge. 

Unfortunately, his team have just four wins in their nine home matches so far and desperately need to improve that.
