Clubs with the fewest home defeats in a Premier League season

Maintaining a good home record throughout an entire season is not an easy task. Irrespective of the club’s form, there are always those unexpected games where teams normally slip up. However, there are some clubs who still manage to see it through even during the most difficult of times to maintain their home record intact by not losing a single game at their own stadium during the whole campaign.   

Chelsea and Liverpool top this table by managing to go an entire season without conceding a single goal on five occasions. It is extremely difficult for a team to do it even once but to do it five times must be really special. Liverpool managed it mainly during the Jurgen Klopp era when the Reds were simply unplayable at times. The good form did not necessarily guarantee them the league trophy at the end but they still managed to have a season to remember.

Giants of England dominate this list

If Klopp has been Liverpool’s successful manager in the Premier League then for Chelsea, it’s Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese coach was in charge of the Blues on two occasions and won almost everything possible. He had an amazing home record during his first spell at Stamford Bridge, hence it is not a surprise to see him on this list. Among others, Manchester United and Arsenal have managed this feat on three occasions each. Check out the list below to find out the remaining clubs with the fewest home defeats in a single Premier League season.
