Liverpool fans love glowing Mikel Arteta tribute – ‘Anfield is special’


Arteta never won at Anfield during his six-and-a-half years with Everton.

The Spaniard did taste victory twice while at Arsenal though was also on the end of a 5-1 defeat by the Reds.

Liverpool have not been beaten at Anfield in the Premier League since April 2017.

And Arteta has revealed his hatred of playing at the famous ground.

“It is very difficult to beat them (Liverpool),” he told Marca.

“Also, in my playing career, Anfield was the only ground where in which I had the feeling of ‘pájara’, of being stuck.

“It happened to me with Arsenal, and we conceded five… You say: ‘I do not know what’s going on, stop the game, please, because I do not know where I am’.

“It’s hard to explain, but it never happened to me anywhere other than Anfield.

“Barca surprise me by the form of some of their goals, but at Anfield you can concede five without knowing.

“Neither in Spain nor in Greece or Germany did I have that feeling. Not even in Old Trafford.”

And Liverpool fans love the sentiments from Arteta.

One wrote on Twitter: “Only at Anfield”

Another Red added: “He knows … they all know lol”

And a third commented: “And this is why we should NEVER leave Anfield”

A fellow Liverpool fan simply wrote: “Anfield is special”

Liverpool will be hoping for another unbeaten home season with the Premier League fixtures released on Thursday morning.
