Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted his side have not been good enough to their last two matches and vowed to do all he can to turn the tide after back-to-back defeats.

Pressure has mounted on Rodgers once again after defeats against West Ham and Manchester United, with bookies installing the Liverpool boss as favourite to be the Premier League managed to face the axe this season.

Yet speaking in the matchday programme ahead of his side’s game against Norwich on Sunday, Rodgers was eager to promote an upbeat tone as he targetted a swift revival.

“I’m well aware that the last two league matches haven’t produced anywhere near the level you want to see from a team representing you and we are all working night and day to put that right,” writes Rodgers.

“However, this team, this group of players, needs your support and needs you to stay with them and help them as they bed in and find their fluency.

“It is something you have done brilliantly for us throughout my time here; it’s what sets you apart.

“Anfield is important to us and the impact you make can be the difference. We never take it for granted and we are fully aware that the responsibility is on us to perform for you, not the other way round.

“Thank you for your continued support – as always we will be striving to give you a result to be proud of come the final whistle.”
