Ex-Arsenal boss Wenger: Liverpool have best stadium in Europe

Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says Liverpool possess the best stadium in Europe.

The Reds have not lost at Anfield in the Premier League since April 2017, adding to their run with a 3-1 victory over Manchester City on Sunday.

"If Liverpool have changed games in Europe, for a big part it's down to Anfield," Wenger said to beIN Sport.

"It's the hardest place in Europe. It's the only place now you can take a corner and shake hands with supporters!

"You can say 'hello my brother, how are you?' and continue to play football. That's a real football field, you know.

"Today we build sophisticated stadiums but that is a stadium with soul, with pressure really on the opponent."
