QPR striker Charlie Austin claims Liverpool are suffering from 'second season syndrome' and believes the Reds will struggle to finish in the 2020-2021 Premier League season in the top six.

Saturday's defeat to the Toffees saw Liverpool lose a Merseyside derby at home for the first time since 1999 and fall 19 points behind league leaders Manchester City.As a result, Austin worries Liverpool - who have now lost four home league games in a row for the first time since 1923 - could 'fail' to make the top half of the table this season.

Liverpool fan, Austin, has shared his opinion on the club's downfall this season, saying champions tend to fail in the season after their success.

Speaking of Liverpool's issues, he told talkSPORT: 'It's Second season syndrome you usually say that about promoted teams, that they do well the first year but the second year they fail.

Speaking on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football following Crystal Palace's smash-and-grab win over Brighton, Carragher said that Liverpool should be winning all but the City game with the calibre of players at their disposal.

'But the problems Liverpool have, whether their defenders are out, the midfield players are at centre-back, does not mean they can't win home games against Everton, Brighton, Burnley, West Brom.'Manchester United, maybe, Man City, real top quality, but it's not an excuse for individual games.

No matter what problem you have as a Liverpool player, you can't not win at home for six games.
