The Merseyside outfit has now failed to win any of their last five games with their last victory coming after beating Aston Villa 4-1 on January 8.

Their 1-0 defeat to Burnley at Anfield on Thursday, January 21 pushed them to fourth on the table with six points behind log leaders Manchester United. However, Klopp was quoted by Daily Mail saying:

"For the first goal we had no protection, we wanted it too much. Things like this should not happen. We had too many players in a receiving position.
"There were some mistakes around the goals. If you want to win here you have to be absolutely top and we were not.
"It's not what we wanted so it's frustrating. We scored twice and that's all okay, but they scored three."
