Rodgers dealing with Liverpool ‘disaster’ ahead of Everton clash

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted that his team’s start to the new season has been disastrous but says he is not worried about potentially losing his job.

A number of underwhelming performances from the Anfield outfit have caused questions over the Northern Irishman’s future to resurface, with the likes of Jurgen Klopp and Carlo Ancelotti being touted as potential replacements for the ex-Swansea trainer.

Liverpool take on an in-form Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday, with another defeat for the Reds surely adding real pressure on Rodgers at the Merseyside club.

Despite this, the Red boss has stated that he is not worried about his position.

“I’ll always work the best I can. But I’m not seeking any reassurances,” BBC Sport quote Rodgers as saying.

“It’s not something I’m worried about.

“Everton have done well. They are a point ahead of us. They’ve had a good start and we’ve had a disaster.”

Both teams won their last games 3-2, with Everton coming from two down to beat West Brom and Liverpool overcoming Aston Villa at Anfield.

The Merseyside derby is always a heated affair, with both sides desperate for an invaluable three points and local bragging rights.
