Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool lost their 6th consecutive Premier League home game as they went down to Fulham 1-0 at Anfield.

Liverpool had never lost more than 4 home games in the league, consecutively and now have lost 6 straight at Merseyside as Jurgen Klopp looks for answers. 

This comes as a shock to most because the Reds were untouchable at home having gone 68 unbeaten before this woeful run. Klopp’s side has only won 1 of its last 7 games and that was a victory against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

Jurgen Klopp himself said that he is going through one of his worst runs as a manager after the loss to relegation-battling and newly promoted, Fulham.

Mario Lemina netted the winner for the Southwest London side as Scott Parker’s team now finds themselves with a real chance of staying up in the league after an amazing turnaround.

Fulham now find themselves equal on points with Brighton & Hove Albion who sit in 17th, 1 place above the drop zone but have played 1 more game. Brighton have lost 3 consecutive so Fulham will fancy their chances of survival if they can continue their fantastic run of form.

The current champions, Liverpool are in serious threat of failing to qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season with just 10 league games left in the season.

The Reds currently sit 8th in the league table, 22 points adrift of leaders Manchester City and 11 points behind arch rivals Manchester United.

They are also 4 points behind 4th placed Chelsea who have a game in hand.

Everton, Tottenham and West Ham United, all sit ahead of Liverpool in the table on points and have games in hand so things are not looking great for the 6-time Champions League winners.

Fulham unbeaten in their last 8 games

Fulham have now gone 8 unbeaten in the league with their 2nd win and 6 draws. This run has seen them now be in the hunt of staying up in the top flight of English football.

Inside 3 minutes, it was Josh Maja who had an opportunity to give Scott Parker’s side the lead against Liverpool as he made a terrific run into the box but could not connect sweetly enough on the volley from a cross by Tete.

Mohamed Salah caused problems for the Lilywhites but they did enough to keep the Egyptian at bay. Lookman should have made it 1-0 for Fulham after some terrific footwork in the 35th minute but failed to get the ball through on goal as a defensive block sent it wide.

Fulham finally broke the deadlock just before halftime in the 45th minute as Cavaleiro’s cross from a wide right freekick was headed by Andy Robertson to Mo Salah at the edge of Liverpool’s penalty box that Salah tried to control but was pressured by Mario Lemina.

Lemina won the ball and hit the ball first time with his right foot to place it perfectly past Alisson’s bottom-right corner to make it 1-0 for Fulham.

Liverpool almost equalised at the start of the second half as Diogo Jota’s fierce strike was somehow kept out by Fulham keeper Areola in the 48th minute.

It was all Liverpool in the 2nd half as Fulham were just trying to keep a clean sheet as Sadio Mane hit the crossbar with his header in the 70th minute.

A couple of minutes later, Xherdan Shaqiri shot just wide for Liverpool as they were knocking on the door. Liverpool could not break through in the end and Fulham held on to a crucial win while Liverpool continued their torrid run of form.

The Premier League is getting extremely exciting at both ends of the table as we prepare for the last 10 games of the season.
