Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has said their 1-0 defeat to Chelsea on Thursday night is a “massive blow”.
The loss means the champions have set an unwanted club record of five successive home league losses.
A sixth Premier League defeat in their last nine games left Klopp’s men in seventh spot and facing the prospect of finishing outside the top four.
“Unfortunately, we cannot say it is only at home,” Klopp said.
“It is not about Anfield or whatever, it is in general, too often. In the decisive moments we have to improve.
“We have to show our quality in these moment, and we don’t do that often enough.
“It is a massive blow. It is not done yet. We have to win football games.”
