• Liverpool lost 1-0 in the Premier League Thursday
  • The Reds are now five league games without a win
  • Klopp's Liverpool are yet to score a league goal in 2021

Jurgen Klopp claimed an unwanted record during Liverpool’s shocking 1-0 loss to Burnley in the Premier League Thursday.

With the loss at Anfield, Liverpool have now gone four matches without scoring in the league. This is the first time a Klopp-managed team has gone four league games without scoring since his Mainz side did so in the Bundesliga, between November and December 2006, according to Opta Sports.

Liverpool had 27 shots in the game at Anfield – the most in any of their matches this season, but failed to convert any of it into a goal. The Reds are yet to score a Premier League goal in 2021 and are without a win for five league matches now.

Burnley received a late penalty, which was put past the Reds goalkeeper Alisson Becker by the Clarets’ forward Ashley Barnes and that ended Liverpool’s 68-game Premier League run at Anfield. It was the second-longest unbeaten home run in English top-flight history after Chelsea’s 86 games ending in October 2008.

The reigning champions remain at fourth place and are six points behind leaders Manchester United.

Reacting to the 1-0 loss to Burnley, Reds boss Klopp took the blame on himself.

"We lost the game which is pretty impossible but we did it. That is my fault. It is my job to make sure the boys have the right feelings and confidence. That didn't work out. We had the ball a lot and created some situations that are OK but our final decision is not right. I said the same thing last week. When something doesn't work you must try harder, longer, and more often and make better decisions. It didn't work tonight," Klopp told Sky Sports in a post-match interview.

In a bid to freshen up his attack, Klopp started the Burnley game without their two front-line players Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, and captain Jordan Henderson in the middle.

Liverpool have little time to bounce back as they have two important games lined up. The Reds take on Manchester United in the FA Cup Sunday before they face off with Tottenham in the Premier League next week. If Liverpool lose against the Spurs, the defending champions will fall out of the top four in the table.
