Brendan Rodgers admits Liverpool must be better in front of goal after

The Reds have won just once in five Premier League games going into Sunday’s Merseyside derby against rivals Everton at Goodison Park.

He says he is feeling no extra pressure and has sought no assurances from the club’s owners regarding his position.

He added: “I’m sure if Daniel doesn’t get the game-time here at the moment there will probably be a loan period for him“.

“If you look at the amount of money Liverpool have spent in the last three seasons they need to be favourites and carry the expectation”.

“Whenever you win games, that’s the key”. When asked if a defeat to Everton would lead to the same “hysteria” surrounding his future that he claimed to have encountered before, the 42-year-old said any defeat for a club as big as Liverpool would be heavily scrutinised. I will just continue with my work, to implement an idea that we know can win games. And obviously the analysis on it is huge.

The Northern Irishman urged frustrated fans to be patient and admitted their criticism is something the team must “take on the chin”.

“Brendan Rodgers is still scratching around for his best formation and a settled XI”.

Spurs continued to show a threat up front as they hit Monaco on the counter-attack, but with nine minutes remaining their concentration dropped and allowed Stephan El Shaarawy to snatch a valuable point.

As much as Liverpool couldn’t take their chances, you have to hand it to Sion, their spirited performance was the real reason they take a point away from Anfield.

One man, a certain Brendan Rodgers to be exact, has identified a reason why the Reds failed to achieve their ambitions last season- sensational telling The Telegraph it was all Daniel Sturridge’s fault. After two consecutive losses in the Swiss Super League, Sion chairman Christian Constantin attacked manager Didier Tholot and his roster for dropping to fifth place in the table and has warned them that if he doesn’t see a more effective and caring team tonight he will start making changes himself. They are a point ahead of us. “It’s a game we want to win”.

“We know we’ve got a few outstanding players to come back into the reckoning”.

An honest post-match interview is seemingly a hard proposition, and the subjectivity of perception permeates most managers’ press conferences, to the chagrin of fans both hostile and friendly.

He has struggled for game time this term following a season-long loan at Lille and is still searching for his maiden Liverpool goal.
