The defending league champions are winless in four matches following a 0-0 draw versus fierce rivals Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday. The result saw the Reds drop down to fourth and manager Jurgen Klopp is wary of the challenges his team face if they are to successfully defend their crown. 
"For me, it's not important where we are in the moment - it's important that we have points and we are around this group (top four)," said Klopp in the aftermath. 

"For that you need points. We are in the middle of a bunch of teams which fight for this spot and that's what we have to do. It's not about if we don't become champions, it's not fun anymore. We just fight for everything and I saw that tonight again.

"The most important thing is to qualify for the Champions League and I know how difficult it is. This season it will be a tough race for the top four," he concluded. 

Burnley have lost three of their last five matches following a 1-0 loss away to West Ham United this past weekend. The Clarets head into this week in 17th spot on the Premier League standings and four points above the relegation zone.
