Brendan Rodgers will be under further pressure should the Reds lose to Chelsea on Saturday.
Things are far from rosy at Anfield this season, Liverpool starting their campaign with a whimper following last season’s excellent run where they finished as Premier League runners-up.
The fans are starting to get impatient and a group of angry supporters are set to fly a banner over Anfield calling for Brendan Rodgers’ sacking during the match against Chelsea this weekend.
The banner is expected to read, “Brendan Rodgers is a football genius. Forever in love with Southampton and Swansea’s footballers. £215m spent on absolute rubbish. #RodgersOUT.”
Liverpool’s season to date has included four defeats in their opening ten Premier League matches and they sit seventh in the table with a mere 13 points from a possible 30. Their Champions League campaign makes for similarly poor reading with just one win from their first three games. Defeat to Real Madrid tonight would effectively spell the end for any European dreams the Merseyside club may have had and even the most optimistic Liverpool fans would admit that this evening’s match at the Bernabeu can only go one way, that way being a Real victory.
Chelsea have stormed their way to the top of the Premier League table and look set to cement their pole position with a victory at Anfield on Saturday. A group of furious fans are willing to make their voices heard during this televised lunchtime encounter and the stadium can expect to witness a banner being flown over the ground calling for the Northern Irishman’s dismissal from his position.
The runners-up of last season appear to be struggling to life after Suarez and many are questioning whether his replacement buys, including Ricky Lambert and the much maligned Mario Balotelli are really up to the task following some dire performances from the pair.
