John Terry questioned whether any team would ever be good enough to beat Chelseas record unbeaten home record after Liverpool’s Anfield fortress was penetrated by Burnley last night.

A late Ashley Barnes penalty helped Sean Dyche’s battle-hardened team emerge with a stunning 1-0 victory which put a major dent in Liverpool’s hopes of retaining their Premier League crown.

Just as significantly, it was the first time Jurgen Klopp’s side had been beaten at home in the Premier League since April 2017 when Crystal Palace won on Merseyside, 67 games ago.

Terry, meanwhile, was a cornerstone of Jose Mourinho’s relentless machine which went 86 matches unbeaten at Stamford Bridge during Chelsea’s pomp and although he paid tribute to Liverpool’s record, he hinted he believed nobody would ever surpass his old club.

He wrote on Instagram: ‘4 Years Unbeaten At Home Chelsea FC. Some record this is, it’s only when you retire and appreciate how good Liverpool have been to even get close to it. Will This Ever Be Beaten?’

Reacting to last night’s defeat, meanwhile, which left Liverpool in fourth place, six points adrift of surprise leaders Manchester United, Klopp was willing to accept responsibility for defeat.

He said: ‘It’s a tough one, not easy to explain. These boys are not the kind of person after a 7-0 to think ‘we’ll go like this’, they worked hard tonight and it didn’t happen.

‘If something doesn’t work, you have to try harder, more often, longer. It was not easy to lose that game and we did it.

‘If I sit now here, losing against Burnley and didn’t score for the last four games and talk about the title race, how silly that would be?’
