Liverpool have improved dramatically under manager Jurgen Klopp when it comes to defending, however, something has changed as of late.

The Reds have conceded eight goals in five matches across all competitions since the Premier League winter break. Liverpool have also lost three games out of five across all competitions.

Liverpool’s poor run of form continued against Chelsea in the fifth round of the FA Cup last night. The Reds left Stamford Bridge with a 2-0 defeat due to goals scored by Willian and Ross Barkley.

The statistic below highlights just how much Klopp’s side have dropped off from a defensive point of view recently.
