The biggest sign that Liverpool’s manager has lost faith in superstar

Liverpool take on Stoke City today in the Premier League and Brendan Rodgers knows questions are being asked about whether he is still the right man for the Reds?

It has been a difficult season for the Merseysiders so far, having lost four of their last five in all competitions, with the one time they’ve avoided defeat being a disappointing 2-2 draw against FC Ludogorets in the Champions League.

To make matters worse for the former Swansea City gaffer, there has been a lot of talk surrounding Liverpool’s captain Steven Gerrard with suggestions that he can no longer do the required job for Liverpool in the middle of the park. This has seen calls for Rodgers to drop the former England international and, as of yet – apart from Liverpool’s Champions League game against Real Madrid – Brendan has kept faith in Stevie G…until today.

The Liverpool gaffer has made several changes and Stevie G finds himself on the bench – is this the begining of the end of Gerrard’s time on Anfield?
