Liverpool's season continues to disappoint, losing their sixth league game of the season in 12 games at the weekend.
Title challengers they are not, with the Reds failing to fill the void left by Luis Suarez, and Daniel Sturridge's injury compounding matters.
Lose to Ludogorets in the Champions League this week and Brendan Rodgers will be under real pressure, whether he likes it or not.
There is real reason to be concerned, just look at Liverpool's record under him this season, to that of Andre Villas-Boas' Tottenham Hotspur after 12 games in 2013/14.
Tottenham's season is six points, or two wins as opposed to losses, superior, and this season it would at this stage be enough to put them into the top four.
Four games later, Villas-Boas was fired, after a 5-0 defeat to a rampant Liverpool team last December.
