The English Premier League title holders Liverpool now has all the reasons to worry about the title race after suffering a defeat in their match against Burnley yesterday night. The title clearly seems to be slipping away with Liverpool now at fourth place of the table. They had recently also failed to grab three points after suffering a draw with the current league leaders Man Utd forcing them to share a point each.

As it stands, Liverpool have gone four back-to-back matches without scoring for the first time since 2000. Liverpool had 27 clear shots on target during yesterday’s match in the entire 90 minutes, none of which materialized making them suffer a home defeat after a 68-game unbeaten record at Anfield.
