Liverpool's poor record in recent games has raised concerns.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has claimed that the trophy is slowly slipping out of the Reds' reach after his side lost to Burnley last night.

The Reds

lost the opportunity to reduce the difference with Manchester United last night, and after the defeat against Burnley, now their difference with the top of the table has reached 6 points. Jürgen Klopp's side failed to continue their 68-game unbeaten run at Anfield, the second-longest streak in top-flight history, but Burnley beat them with a goal by Ashley Barnes.

Klopp's side has failed to score in their last four games, which equals their record in 2000. Now Carragher, who played more than 500 games for Liverpool between 1996 and 2013, has claimed that the trophy is slowly slipping out of Liverpool's reach.

He told Sky Sports: 

"We talked about a lack of form and Jurgen Klopp has come out and defended his players and these Liverpool players have done so well for the club."

"The title is slipping away. It's going to be really difficult at this moment in time. There's six points between the top, it can still be recovered but the form they are in and the fixtures they have in the next couple of months. 

"They will start worrying about the top four rather than the title. They need to get back to winning games and scoring goals before pondering about the defence of their title. 

"They've been so poor, he (Klopp) can't believe what's happening to Liverpool in the last few weeks, from the 7-0 win at Palace. 

"So many players are out of form at the same time, how they go about it (the games).
