John Terry reacts on Instagram after Liverpool lose home record
John Terry questioned whether any team would ever be good enough to beat Chelsea’s unbeaten home
record after Liverpool’s Anfield fortress was penetrated by Burnley last night.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are wobbling and now find themselves six points off league leaders Manchester United.
Defending their title now looks unlikely. Instead, a fight for a top-four finish looks to be their new goal.
Jose Mourinho went 86 matches unbeaten at Stamford Bridge during Chelsea’s pomp and although he paid
tribute to Liverpool’s record, he hinted he believed nobody would ever surpass his old club.
He wrote on Instagram: ‘4 Years Unbeaten At Home Chelsea FC. Some record this is, it’s only when you retire
and appreciate how good Liverpool have been to even get close to it. Will This Ever Be Beaten?’
Reacting to last night’s defeat, meanwhile, which left Liverpool in fourth place, six points adrift of surprise
leaders Manchester United, Klopp was willing to accept responsibility for the defeat.
He said: ‘It’s a tough one, not easy to explain. These boys are not the kind of person after a 7-0 to think
‘we’ll go like this’, they worked hard tonight and it didn’t happen.
If something doesn’t work, you have to try harder, more often, longer. It was not easy to lose that game and we
did it. ‘If I sit nowhere, losing against Burnley and didn’t score for the last four games and talk about the title
race, how silly that would be?’
