Liverpool’s 2-0 Merseyside derby defeat to Everton has brought the club to a 98-year low, with the Reds suffering four successive league reversals at Anfield for the first time since 1923.

The Reds have seen the wheels come off their 2020-21 Premier League campaign in spectacular fashion, with the defending champions hitting a serious slump.

Jurgen Klopp’s woes continued against their archrival on Saturday, with Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson netting for the Toffees, and the German must now reflect on a sorry home run that is Liverpool’s worst in almost a century.

When did Liverpool last endure such a run?

You have to turn the clock back to 1923 to find the last time the Reds came unstuck in four straight league games in their own backyard.

In Germany, Borussia Dortmund fell further behind the Bundesliga's UEFA Champions League qualification places.

Everton secure a first Premier League win at Anfield in 22 years as goals from Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson deal a blow to Liverpool 's top four hopes. In a landmark result for both sides, Everton earned their first derby win anywhere since 2010, while Liverpool have now lost four successive home matches for the first time since 1923. Everton finally rid themselves of their Anfield bogey with a brilliantly drilled performance in which goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and Michael Keane were excellent, while Richarlison led the line tirelessly.

Liverpool will aim to bounce back from three successive Premier League defeats when they entertain Everton in the 238th Merseyside derby on Saturday. The recent slump in domestic form however has seen Jurgen Klopp's men drop to sixth in the Premier League table and three points against the local rivals from across Stanley Park - who could move level with Liverpool were they to win at Anfield for the first time since 1999 - would be extremely useful in getting the Reds' top four push back on.

Back then, with fixtures coming thick and fast, Liverpool found themselves on the wrong end of results against Aston Villa, Sheffield United, Cardiff and Newcastle.

The last of those setbacks 98 years ago came on Christmas Day, with the men from Merseyside also in action on Boxing Day and again on Dec. 29.

They got back to winning ways that day against West Ham, before going on to finish 12th.

When did Liverpool last lose four straight games in the Premier League?

The Reds have been models of consistency throughout Klopp’s reign, with it rare for them to endure such dips.

  Leicester City vs. Liverpool: Time, TV schedule, live stream, odds for Premier League match The clubs collide on Saturday.It seems like a lifetime ago, given how results have gone for Liverpool since then. Jurgen Klopp's men have fallen to fourth on the table thanks to an injury crisis and loss of form, the combination of which has seen the club lose more league games than it has won since the calendar switched to 2021.

Ryan Kent made his fourth successive start in Bristol City’s 2-2 draw at Leeds on Sunday, but the winger disappointed at Elland Road where he was consistently wasteful in his play. Pedro Chirivella remains a key figure at Willem II and enjoyed another full game in a 2-1 loss to ADO Den Haag on Allan Rodrigues entered Apollon Limassol’s lineup for the midweek cup tie against Othellos, but couldn’t prevent his side exiting after a 1-0 loss in what was his only outing. New signing Anderson Arroyo made a second successive start and completed his first full game for Real Mallorca B in a 1-1 draw

Liverpool have won 11 and drawn nine in the league at Anfield since the defeat. Just three points separate the sides ahead of the 204th Merseyside derby. So can Carlo Ancelotti's men make it eight league away wins this season? Ancelotti will also hope his side can replicate their defensive displays and not allow the Reds a significant number of shots on target, with the four they have averaged the same number as Burnley and Brighton conceded in their wins at Anfield . Liverpool will expect to dominate possession, but the statistic show if Everton can reproduce what has made them so

Having already been downed by Brighton, Manchester City and Leicester in their last three Premier League games, they have now lost four in a row for the first time in top-flight competition since 2002.

Everton will be reveling in the fact that it was the one to push its archrival a little deeper into the mire, with the Toffees savoring their first win at Anfield since 1999 while also bringing a 23-game winless run in all competitions against their neighbors from across Stanley Park to a close.

The bigger picture

Klopp’s side had been rock solid on home soil prior to hitting its recent wobble.

A 1-0 defeat to Burnley on January 21 was its first in the league at Anfield in 68 outings, a sequence stretching back to April 2017.

Liverpool are looking for a fourth consecutive Premier League victory when they visit Southampton on Sunday, fresh off the back of knocking Man United out of Europe. There were once again outstanding performances from several Liverpool players, with Mamadou Sakho, Dejan Lovren and Emre Can particularly impressive. This Reds team is a completely different animal to the one that looked so short on confidence and quality before the turn of the year , and a strong end to the season could well be on the cards.

The Reds have now failed to take three points from a home game since Dec. 16, when they saw off Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham 2-1.

Klopp has already thrown in the towel on the club's title defense, with Liverpool the first champion to suffer four straight defeats since Everton in the late 1920s, and securing a top-four finish now represents the height of the Reds' domestic ambition as they slip further off the pace being set by Manchester City at the summit.

Liverpool’s next outing at Anfield will come against Chelsea on March 4, with things not about to get any easier for an out-of-sorts side.
