Another game without victory has added to the pressure on Brendan Rodgers after his side failed to beat newly promoted Norwich City at Anfield on Sunday.
Jamie Carragher discussed the manager’s future on Sky Sports after the match, suggesting that the owners, by not sacking him in the summer, will now have to give him until Christmas time to turn things around.
“If you give him that much money and then say after eight league games ‘we’re gonna make a change’ you just think ‘you should have done it in the summer’.
“If you’ve backed him with the money, he’s got to get longer than eight to 10 games, probably to Christmas.
“The home games will determine it, and another poor one today.
Carragher spoke of when incredibly poor statistic, that Liverpool have failed to score more than one goal in 18 of their last 20 games – this from a supposedly attacking manager.
“In the last 20 games, 18 of them we haven’t scored more than one goal and that’s a problem for a manager who is meant to be an attacking manager.
