Liverpool collapse in 2021

Three Premier League games in 2021, zero goals for Liverpool. The streak is even greater if we count from a little further back: in the last five games they have not won any, with three draws in between and only one goal in favor. In total, more than seven hours without scoring a goal.

And the worst had not yet come. Tonight against him Burnley, in addition to not marking they have also received one, in 82, penalty, converted by Ashley Barnes, which has endorsed them yet another defeat and that, above all, unexpectedly distances them from the rest of the title candidates.
