Liverpool’s Anfield woes
Up until recently, Anfield had of course been a real fortress for Liverpool.
The Reds had managed to notch a 68-game unbeaten run at the ground, which of course proved to be a key factor in them securing their first Premier League title last year.
However, after losing that record to Burnley, of all sides, back in January, Jurgen Klopp and co. have been simply woeful at home.
The loss to Burnley was followed by defeats to all of Brighton, Manchester City, Everton and, most recently, Chelsea.
That defeat to Chelsea meant Liverpool had lost five games in a row at Anfield for the first time in their storied history.
The Merseysiders have also scored just one goal at Anfield in the Premier League throughout 2021:

How Liverpool can improve at home
Now, following their collapse at home, a Liverpool fan has offered a rather bizarre way his side could improve their form.
Speaking to talkSPORT recently, one Liverpool fan voiced his opinion that the empty seats/backdrop at Anfield being the same colour as the players’ home kit was causing them issues:
“My belief is it’s not just at Anfield, it’s all clubs that play in red like Liverpool, Man United and Arsenal.
“We have red backdrops and we play in red kits.
“I believe it is the colour clash when clubs are passing the ball, it takes them longer to visualise their players.”
A solution to this, according to the fan, would be to ‘change their backdrop’ to match their away kit, then Liverpool would improve a lot at home:
“If you’re making a painting and you put a red colour on top of a red, it actually looks worse than blue on blue.
“I can guarantee if Liverpool changed their backdrop to their away kit, they would perform a lot better.
“Even if it only made a 10 per cent difference, in the scheme of things 10 per cent is a lot.”
