Liverpool will still be finding it difficult to comprehend what has befallen them since the start of 2017. They were once favourite in all ramifications for the Premier League title and were also in the EFL and FA CUP but all that have evaporated into the thin air.
The Reds defeated Manchester City by a line goal on New Year Eve but they have managed only one win in eight games since the start of January.
They started the year with a 2-2 draw against Premier League strugglers Sunderland on January 2, were held to a barren draw by Plymouth six days after and were dumped by Southampton out of the EFL Cup. They were forced to another draw at Old Trafford before earning their first and only win so far away at Plymouth in the FA Cup fourth
Since that win Jurgen Klopp’s men have lost three consecutive games in all the three competitions.
A surprise 3-2 defeat to Swansea City was followed by a lone goal loss to Southampton which cost them a place in the EFL final and this season reached the worst downturn with a humiliating 2-1 defeat against Championship side Wolves.
All the three losses were at Anfield and in a space of six days. The Reds welcome Chelsea on Tuesday night in the Premier League and losing the match means they set up a new world record.
Liverpool will created a new English, Europena and World record for the most home defeats within 11 days if Chelsea win at Anfield.
