Liverpool have been without a goal in the league for 438 minutes, and the loss to Burnley was the first at Anfield after 68 games • The coach: "We got a serious punch in the face, it's my fault" • Will the champion lose her place in the top 4?
"Can't talk about a championship"
Last night's loss to Burnley (1-0) was Liverpool's first at Anfield since April 2017, ending an incredible streak of 68 unbeaten home games (55 wins, 13 draws).
Moreover, Klopp's side have not scored a right goal in 438 minutes, 4 league games in a row, almost like the streak they had in the last five games of the 1999/2000 season under the late Gerard Hoya.
"It was like a serious punch in the face," coach
"It's my responsibility, it's the simple explanation. We lost a game that was impossible to lose. It's my fault. After we lost to Burnley without scoring four games, it would be silly to talk about a championship. We can't talk about the championship fight right now. We have to win games and score goals. "We will work harder, and we will not talk as if the situation is simple."
The British media are warning Liverpool, who have become from a favorite to winning a second consecutive championship, to one that could lose its place in the top 4, if it loses in London to Tottenham on Thursday.
But even before that, a difficult hurdle awaits Liverpool in the cup when they meet Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.
