Liverpool’s 68-match unbeaten streak ended at Anfield. Klopp’s team could not score a goal against Burnley either. The coaches had a heated argument during the break.
The Liverpool crisis continues in the Premier League. Jürgen Klopp’s team lost to Burnley 0: 1 at home and already has a 5-match unbeaten streak. Moreover: 4 games in a row, Liverpool has not scored a goal. The German coach of Merseyside was very angry.
It was Liverpool’s first home defeat in 68 games in the Premier League. The Merseysiders last lost at Crystal Palace in April 2017 (1: 2). Ashley Barnes netted the winning goal in the 83rd minute with a penalty awarded to Allison.
After the third defeat of the season, Liverpool are in the 4th place in the table and is already 6 points behind the leader Manchester United. In the last 5 matches, Klopp’s team managed to gain only 3 points. Just like in the previous matches, Liverpool had goal moments now, but the goal could not be scored against Burnley.
During the break, on the way to the locker room, Klopp had a heated argument with Burnley head coach Sean Ditch. The German colleague was shouting too loudly and explaining something with hand gestures. It doesn’t appear to have been the subject of much debate by the coaches, but it does appear that Klopp was, to put it mildly, outraged.
“Now that I think about this game, there is only one question in my head: how can I lose such a match?” – Klopp said after the match and added: “But we lost this game. It’s our fault and mine. This failure is like a cool blow to the face. ”
Klopp decided to rest Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah. Instead, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Divock Origi were in the starting lineup. 57 minutes later the German included both superstars in the game, but to no avail.
For more than 400 minutes, Liverpool have not scored a goal in the Premier League.
The last victory of Merseyside in the English Championship dates back to December 19, when Klopp’s team defeated Crystal Palace 7: 0 in the 14th round. Tottenham, Everton, and West Ham are already very close to Liverpool in the tournament table.
That is why the German does not want to talk about the title anymore: “Imagine what a fool I must be, now that we have lost at home to Burnley and have not scored in 4 games, I will sit here and talk about the chances of winning the championship. “We have to win games, and we need to score goals.”
Liverpool’s next match in the Premier League is on January 28 – away against Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham. Before that (Sunday) is the Association Cup match against Manchester
