Liverpool's frailties were laid bare once more as they ushered in the New Year with a risible 3-1 defeat at Brentford.
Jurgen Klopp's side could have moved fifth in the Premier League with a win, but they folded in West London, conceding twice in the first half and then again late on, as the Bees leapt to within two points of their vaunted opponents in the table.
Ibrahima Konate's own goal gave Thomas Frank's side a 20th-minute lead, and after Brentford had seen two goals chalked off for offside, Yoann Wissa doubled their advantage three minutes before half-time.
Klopp made three substitutions at half time, with Virgil van Dijk among those replaced, and Liverpool started the second period well, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain heading them back into the game five minutes after the restart.
But they were unable to build on that goal, and after Konate and Darwin Nunez had spurned chances, they were undone on the break late on, as Bryan Mbeumo got the better of Konate to fire home.
Liverpool could now find themselves seven points off the top four if Manchester United win on Tuesday, with the optimism of a four-game winning run completely dampened by another terrible away showing.
