Liverpool have been in torrid form in recent months. The Reds have now lost six games in a row at home, a feat unimaginable at the start of the season. The latest humiliation came at the hands of Fulham. Speaking to Match of the Day 2 after the game, Danny Murphy was adamant that Liverpool will be back on top next season.

Six straight home defeats

Who could’ve possibly thought this would happen?

The Reds went years without losing a game at home and now they’ve lost six in a row.

The latest defeat was to Scott Parker’s struggling Fulham.

The Cottagers arrived at Anfield in the relegation zone but the Reds arrived in dreadful home form.

The visitors went ahead on the stroke of halftime when Mario Lemina volleyed one past Alisson Becker following poor work from Mo Salah.

From then on out it was the same old story: uninventive, low energy football until the final whistle.

The result was the first time Jürgen Klopp has lost to a newly promoted side at home as Liverpool boss.

Danny Murphy on Liverpool

This game was perfect pundit fodder.

What better time to be a pundit than when the Reds are in form this poor.

Speaking on Match of the Day 2 former Red Danny Murphy was optimistic about Liverpool recovering:

“I don’t worry long term still. I think when everyone is fit, they’ll be competitive again at the top of the league next season.

“I just can’t see any other way Liverpool will be next season when those players come back. I do just think it’s one of those bizarre moments in time.”

What RTK has to say

Danny Murphy is optimistic about Liverpool recovering and so are we.

These problems are rooted in injury and fatigue.

We’ll see the best of the Reds again when the lads have had a rest and have recovered.

We’ll bring in some quality in depth in the summer and that’ll be that. We’ll be back on top next season, next year is our year and all that.
