Brendan Rodgers has said that he cannot understand the criticism aimed at his side when the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City have lost more games than his team.

Under-fire and under-pressure, Rodgers can’t comprehend the hysteria that is surrounding Liverpool at the minute and despite being two points behind Arsenal and four behind City, it’s the number of games that all the sides have lost which seems to be dominating his thinking.

“There’s a hysteria around the club. However criticism comes, whether deserved or undeserved, you don’t like it,” Rodgers said.

“What has surprised me with it is we’ve lost fewer games than Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal in all competitions. We’ve only lost two.”

“There’s scrutiny on the players but it’s made us stronger.”

To be fair, he has a point but it is one that ignores the fact that they needed penalties to beat Carlisle during the week in the League Cup and hadn’t won a game since August 17th until they defeated Aston Villa 3-2 at the weekend.

Here at Daily Cannon we don’t want to see Rodgers getting the sack. Liverpool are awful under him and he is pure comedy gold – long may it last.
