Jurgen Klopp played down concerns about Liverpool's current form after his side fell to a third defeat in their last four games. 

The runaway Premier League leaders have been beaten by Atletico Madrid in the Champions League, Watford in the Premier League and Chelsea in the FA Cup fifth round on Tuesday night in what is Liverpool's worst spell of the 2019-20 season. 

Klopp's side have set the standard this campaign and defeat at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday saw them go another game without scoring in their losses and making it eight goals conceded in their last four.

But having made seven changes to the side that lost to Watford and the club still on course for a first Premier League title, Klopp is adamant that there is no need for panic during this surprising blip.  

'It went our way for so long because we defended outstandingly,' Klopp said.
