Liverpool had a really bad Friday night losing to Chelsea 0-1 at home. It was a principal big match for Eurocup places and the London club proved that they are more ready to chase top-4 than the title holders at this moment.

Don`t miss out 💥: Liverpool lose 0-1 to Chelsea | Premier League results.

Liverpool have lost five consecutive home games (league and all comps) for the first time in their history, while they’re also the first reigning English top-flight champion to lose five home league games in a row. 

Also, there was an interesting moment in the match that created enough resonance: the “strange” substitution of the Egyptian attacker in the second half. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain came on in his place. Mohammed Salah was visibly unhappy. 

Just after the substitution, Salah’s agent Remy Abbas Issa posted a cryptic response to the change, tweeting out just a single full stop:

Liverpool manager revealed after the match he had made the substitution because the Egypt international was “feeling the intensity”.

Klopp said that he fully believes Salah, who, by the way, is Liverpool’s most prolific goalscorer (20+ goals for 4 years). 

“I don’t think for him that is pressure, I think he enjoys that. Mo’s goalscoring rate is absolutely outstanding and especially when you look at the consistency”

Klopp said. 

“We make these decisions in the moment and not with any thought behind. The problem is you have to explain it the day after the game.”

“We all know we came together to the top and we came together to the point here and we will sort it together. I can’t not change a player because it creates a story afterwards. I don’t even think about these things in the moment. You do it because in the moment you think it is right and you are allowed to judge it afterwards if it was right.”

Jurgen explained.

Actually, it is the largest negative points differential by a defending champion after 27 games in PL history.

Liverpool after 27 games of 2019-20:79 points
Liverpool after 27 games of 2020-21: 43 points 

The next time the Merseysiders play at home they will host Fulham on 7 March.

  • Only Manchester City (24) have earned more points than Chelsea (18) since Thomas Tuchel took over eight games ago.
  • Liverpool have earned just 10 points from 11 Premier League games in 2021.
