Carragher annoyed with what Salah did "three or four times" vs Burnley

Jamie Carragher cut a frustrated figure at full-time having just watched his side lose at home for the first time in nearly four years.

Ashley Barnes scored from the spot having been brought down by Alisson in the 82nd minute to secure the 1-0 win.

The result put an end to Liverpool's impressive home unbeaten record and leaves them in fourth, six points behind first-placed Manchester United.

Jurgen Klopp 's side have also now failed to score in four consecutive Premier League outings.

Mohamed Salah came on in the 57th minute in search of his first goal since the Aston Villa drumming in the FA Cup but only left Carragher annoyed.

"I can’t remember a time when this Liverpool team have been so out of form," said Carragher. "The front three and the full-backs – all five of them – don’t feel anywhere near their best.

"It’s not just that they’re not scoring, it’s the general play as well. You saw with Salah, three or four times he just ran into defenders.

"Liverpool supporters will be massively frustrated. This team has brought the title back but the best Liverpool teams have brought that standard year in year out."

He added: "Jurgen Klopp has defended the players but at this moment it looks like the title is slipping away, it will be really difficult.

"They’ve been so poor, it’s hard to believe what has happened to Liverpool. So many players out of form at the same time."

Klopp accepted blame at full-time, even if he couldn't believe what he had just seen.

"The things that don’t work are my fault," he said.

"The things that work are the players. We’ve worked that long together now. If I make clear which movements make sense because it will hurt the opponent, and they don’t do them, then I have to make it clearer. That’s how it is.

"The good thing is, we can change it, we just have to work on it. And we can’t work on tonight’s game any more, but we can use it for the next one.

"I can’t believe we lost it, but it’s the truth and we have to accept that."
