With so much discussion over Brendan Rodgers’ Liverpool future and his three years in charge of the club, statistician Andrew Beasley has compiled this table showing Rodgers’ complete record as LFC manager.
Among the standout things in the graphic, we can see:
- Rodgers has managed 5 wins from 25 attempts against the top 4 sides of City, Arsenal, Chelsea and United
- Rodgers’ best record is against the 5 teams no longer in the Premier League
- Hull City and Crystal Palace have been Rodgers’ bogey sides, beating each just once
- Rodgers has never won against Chelsea
- Rodgers has enjoyed success against Spurs – beating them in 5 out of 6 fixtures
Overall, you could argue that the image shows how Rodgers has been able to defeat the mid-to-lower sides, but consistently struggled to outmanoeuvre the top teams.
