Jurgen Klopp admits his future at Liverpool is on the line if he is unable to steer his players out of their recent slump in form following their 3-1 defeat at relegation-threatened Leicester on Monday.

Jamie Vardy scored either side of a Danny Drinkwater strike as the reigning Premier League champions started life without Claudio Ranieri with a victory, leaving Liverpool to drop out of the top four.

The defeat was Liverpool's fifth in seven outings in all competitions, and although they remain the only top-six side unbeaten against their rivals so far this season, Klopp knows he and his players are playing for their futures.

“It's getting more serious now. We all play for our future, myself included," Klopp said following the tie against Leicester.

"We get judged every day, especially on match days. Of course performances have influence on these things.

“I feel maximum responsibility because I am the manager. I hope I use the word 'we' and not 'they' because I'm involved in this.”

'Ibra is running the Man Utd dressing room!'

Liverpool have suffered away defeats to Burnley, Bournemouth, Hull and Leicester this season, while also losing at home to Swansea, leaving their hopes of Champions League qualification in doubt.

The Reds were also beaten home and away by Claude Puel's Southampton both home and away in the League Cup and were beaten 2-1 at Anfield by Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Cup.
