The historic loss to Everton on Saturday consolidated the following conclusion: Liverpool is experiencing its worst moment in years in the English Premier League. But after all, can we talk about a crisis, or is it just a bad phase for the current Premier League title holder?
Liverpool had lost 23 games to Everton (12 draws and 11 wins). It was his biggest unbeaten streak against a specific opponent. His last loss to his rival had been in October 2010. At Anfield Road, he hadn’t been beaten since September 1999. It was likely that sometime it would end. The question is the moment when this “parish” ended.
Liverpool have accumulated four straight losses on Anfield Road in the current English Premier League. It is his worst home streak in almost 100 years, something that has not happened since 1923. There is a concern that performance in other competitions, such as the FA Cup, where he was eliminated by Manchester United, and especially in the Premier League, affect the campaign in the continental tournament. Not just in the current edition, but in the next ones. Today Liverpool are out of the Champions League qualifying zone, three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
