More pressure has been mounted on Liverpool boss, Brendan Rodgers after a dissppointing match against Norwich this Sunday. Liverpool drew the match 1-1 against Norwich at Anfield. Ings Scored first for Liverpool after half time in the 48th minute. However, Martins got one back for Norwich in the 61st minute following a blunder from Liverpool keeper during a corner kick.
Liverpool have won just 5 of their last 18 games in all competitions. This season, they have only scored four goals in the Premier League which is a record better than only Newcastle’s. All these point to a dismal performance from Liverpool.
The coach has a lot to be blamed for. Liverpool’s defence has continued in its sloppiness. This problem is further made worse by Liverpool’s bluntness going forward. Brendan Rodgers spent £80 million on 7 players this transfer season. However, there hasn’t been much impact in their game this season.
The next test for Brendan Rodgers is their league cup match against Carlisle on Wednesday. After that is the match against Aston Villa at Anfield. Aston Villa have won only one match this season. However, they have a good record against Liverpool. They have had two wins in their last four away games at Anfield. Also, Liverpool has not beaten Aston Villa at home since 2010.
Brendan Rodger’s side has to improve their performance in the coming matches. If Rodgers doesn’t improve he could find himself out of a job very soon. This is made worse by the insinuation that Dortmund’s former coach, Jurgen Klopp might be interested in Rodger’s position.
