Liverpool yet to win at Anfield for English Premier League

Posted on by SoccerPunter

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers suffered another lackluster performance at Anfield  as his struggling side were held to a 0-0 boring draw by Stoke, while Tottenham cruised to a 2-0 win over Aston Villa on Sunday.

Rodgers has yet to record a English Premier League home win in four attempts since taking charge of Liverpool in the close-season and the Reds’ barren run in front of their own supporters has now stretched to six matches in all competitions.

The hosts hit the woodwork thrice, but Liverpool were unable to break down Stoke‘s stubborn defence and Rodgers’ side remain in 14th place after just one win in their first seven Premier League matches.

Liverpool, whose only home success under Rodgers came in the Europa League against Gomel, are already eight points off the top four and more worryingly for their manager, they lie only three points above the relegation zone.

At White Hart Lane, Tottenham secured their third successive league win thanks to goals from Steven Caulker and Aaron Lennon.

After a slow start under new boss Andre Villas-Boas, Spurs have climbed to fifth place and they were always in control against struggling Villa, who slip to 16th position.

Villas-Boas, who ended American goalkeeper Brad Friedel’s run of 310 consecutive Premier League starts by selecting recent signing Hugo Lloris instead, saw defender Caulker break the deadlock in the 58th minute when he deflected in Jermain Defoe’s shot.

England winger Lennon sealed the points with a surging run and cool finish in the 67th minute.

Elsewhere, Southampton defender Jose Fonte headed a late equaliser to salvage a 2-2 draw against Fulham in a dramatic finish at St Mary’s.

Nigel Adkins’ side looked set for their sixth defeat in seven league matches this season when Kieran Richardson put Fulham 2-1 ahead with just two minutes to go.

But Portuguese centre-back Fonte, who had earlier given Saints the lead before a Jos Hooiveld own goal drew Fulham level, came to the rescue as he popped up at the far post to nod home a free-kick in stoppage-time.

Fonte’s goal lifted Southampton out of the relegation zone at Reading’s expense, while Fulham remain in ninth place.
