THE pressure is building on Liverpool's under-fire manager Brendan Rodgers after the Reds' season suffered another blow with yesterday's

3-0 loss to Manchester United.

And the Antrim man's post-match comments, when he appeared to be clueless over how to cure the team's woes, will only add to calls for Rodgers to leave his post after yesterday taking a gamble by dropping 'keeper Simon Mignolet.

The Anfield club are today in 10th place in the Premier League table, a massive 18 points behind leaders Chelsea, and questions are being asked about Rodgers' long-term future.

"With the players we had we did the best we could," said Rodgers, who spent £120million on transfers last summer alone.

"We have to recapture the team ethos. With the emphasis of the team, it is clear to me that we are searching to find solutions.

"In every dressing room there have always been been issues, but it is not something I discuss outside of the dressing room.

"The players are honest but we are not getting results.

"'We didn't deserve to lose, but we need to be more clinical. Their goalkeeper got man of the match and that tells you everything.

"We created more chances against United than in the last five or six games but we are disappointed with the first and the third goal," said Rodgers.
