Jose Mourinho has congratulated Liverpool on getting so close to matching Chelsea’s unbeaten home Premier League record, though does not believe the milestone will ever be toppled.

The champions’ 68-game unbeaten run at Anfield was ended on Thursday night by Burnley, with Ashley Barnes netting from the spot in the 83rd minute to secure victory for the visiting team for the first time since April 2017.



Liverpool had been starting to look towards Chelsea’s remarkable unbeaten home record of 86 matches without defeat between 2004 and 2008.

However, they ultimately fell 18 games short of the benchmark – most of which were recorded during Mourinho’s first spell at Stamford Bridge – and the current Tottenham boss believes it is one of few sporting records that may not ever be broken.



‘You know, the records are there to be broken. Even the most incredible ones, in so many sports,’ said the Portuguese coach on Friday.

‘But there are some records that you look to them and you feel that it’s almost impossible for somebody to do it.

‘And honestly what Liverpool did was amazing. What they did is very, very difficult to achieve.

‘And of course our record from the Chelsea time is still the record and is very, very difficult for somebody to do better than that.

‘But congratulations to Liverpool for the amazing run that they had by not losing a Premier League match at home for so long.’

Although the result stunned most of the footballing world, with Burnley fighting for their place in the division, Mourinho claims there are no such things as upsets in the Premier League anymore due to the competitiveness and quality present throughout the table.

He continued: ‘I would say that almost every club is having these difficult periods. I would also give responsibility to opponents.

‘I keep saying that what was almost a scandal [to lose] years ago is not a scandal anymore. Any team can go to any stadium and get a result. For me that’s clearly a situation that people cannot underestimate and people sometimes [do].

‘The teams potentially considered with less potential is not like that as much as like before and these clubs and these professionals they also deserve the credit. So I don’t open my mouth anymore of “Wow! What a crazy result”. No more crazy results.

‘So I feel it’s quite normal that every team, even the ones whose objective is to stay champions or top four or top six, I’m not surprise if these teams they have a run of a few matches where confidence drops a little bit as a consequence of a couple of bad results and then you pay with a few bad results.

‘But the reality is nothing is eternal, not the consecutive victories and not the consecutive defeats, and always the next match, and the next and the next, are open matches with open results.’
