Joe Gomez has credited Liverpool’s supporters for helping make Anfield a fortress in recent seasons.
The Reds haven’t lost a Premier League game at their famous home ground since April 2017, going undefeated there in the previous two campaigns.
And Gomez, who started at centre-back in the Community Shield clash on Sunday, says Liverpool’s record at home is “special”.
“It’s weird, it’s sort of just flown in the sense that you don’t really take it in,” Gomez said of Liverpool’s imperious home record.
“I think you just see each game as that individual game. But when you look back at that stat, it’s special.
“I think it’s a credit to the supporters. The atmosphere they set makes it very difficult for people to come to Anfield.
“Hopefully it’s something we can continue. If we do that this year, I’m sure we’ll be in a good place. Obviously [Norwich] will be the first time back since Madrid. It’s always special playing at Anfield, I think that’s one of massive pluses at being at this club.
“We know how much of a historic place it is and how good the atmosphere is. All the lads are looking forward to it.”
On facing Norwich on Friday, the England international added: “I definitely think they’ll be a tough side. The Championship is a very good league, I experienced it when I was younger.
“For them to rise to the top of that and to get promoted, it speaks for itself. They’re going to be a tough side and it’s not going to be easy for us. I’m sure they will be hungry.
“I think this year a lot teams will come to Anfield wanting to just give it their all and give us their best because they know what we can achieve.”
