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."

Sadio Mane scored deep in stoppage time to seal a comeback win over Aston Villa last weekend.

The Reds followed that up with a resilient 3-1 win over Manchester City on Sunday, taking them eight points clear at the top.

"Yeah, [with] the way we're getting the results, with going behind and still managing to win the games," the Dutchman told the club's website.

"Look at last week when we played Aston Villa away, I think everybody thought we might lose the game or draw but we managed to win the game at the end.

"Those kind of moments give you confidence during the season and that's what we have right now: we have confidence because of the results we are getting but also because of the football we are playing. That's what we showed today."

The 33-year-old has only played 120 minutes of top-flight football for Chelsea this season.

But Deschamps says he has trust in the striker.

"Maybe that means something but it's mostly what happened on the pitch that means something," he said.

"If he is the one I used the most, do not forget either the ratio of matches and goals.

"There are not many in front of him in terms of goals in the history of the France team. He did the right thing, he answered the trust."

The 23-year-old has not played for Les Bleus since March 2018.

He has returned to form lately with United, and Deschamps has been watching.

"He was part of the French team on a regular basis, but recently he was often injured.

"He came back not so long ago and it's going well in his role as a central striker with Manchester United. For a long time he's been part of the players likely to be called up."

The 21-year-old was brought in as an exciting prospect from Swansea City this summer.

And he has been pleasantly surprised with appearances in all 12 Premier League matches.

"Coming in was always going to be tough and it was going to be different from playing in the Championship," he said.

"I think I've taken it in my stride, tried to calm myself down a bit and think, 'I'm here for a reason'.

"At the start of the season, I maybe didn't think I would play as much. Every game I've been learning and the gaffer has trusted me and I've really enjoyed it."

"Since he's come back in, we've got that focal point," James said Sunday's win over Brighton.

"He's a great link-up player. He can come short or go in behind. It's been important for me and for Marcus since he's come back into the team to get that interlink.

"Since he's come back, he's got goals and he's got assists and he's been great for us."
