It can also be said that Liverpool will not be able to retain their Premier League title this season considering how they are currently 22 points behind leaders Manchester City after 27 games.
Jurgen Klopp explained that his side's defeat against Chelsea is a massive blow for their target of finishing among the top four this season in the Premier League.
"It is a massive blow. It is not done yet, but we don't have to talk about if you lose that many games, you don't have the right to go to the Champions League.
''We have to win football games and we know that and we will work on it, but for tonight, it was not enough.''
Liverpool will be facing Fulham in their next Premier League game which will be played on Sunday, March 7, at Anfield.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Premier League defending champions Liverpool are leading the race to land Udinese star Rodrigo De Paul this summer.
The Reds have pencilled the midfielder as a quality replacement for want-away Dutchman Georginio Wijnaldum who is heavily wanted by Barcelona boss Ronaldo Koeman.
Jurgen Klopp has not been able to convince the 30-year-old to sign an extension with his current deal running out at the end of this season.
However, Liverpool are not the only one interested in De Paul as Antonio Conte's Inter Milan also want him but the EPL team is the favourite to land the player.
It was stated that Udinese will listen to offers of about £30 million from his prospective suitors but the Merseyside outfit is planning to make an initial bid of £26m.
