A selection of the latest stories involving Liverpool Football Club this Monday morning.

Liverpool's season reached another low yesterday as they were on the end of a 3-0 hammering at Old Trafford against Manchester United, despite having plenty of chances in the game, but failed to convert them.

Manager Brendan Rodgers rued the missed opportunities that were presented to the Reds, highlighting the amount of chances his side created but were thwarted by David De Gea in the Manchester United goal.

He told reporters after the game: "We had enough chances to get something from the game and it probably epitomised what our season has been like - there have been nowhere near enough goals in the team and that puts pressure on you in the games. When you concede then you sometimes think you can't get the goals, and that has clearly been an issue for us.

"You come here and create so many chances, you'd expect to score at least two or three of those, but it wasn't to be. The players kept going and they gave everything into the game, but we just couldn't find the goal that could get us back into the game."

Sidelined forward Daniel Sturridge is trying to remain optimistic as he tweeted after the defeat at Old Trafford. Sturridge has been a big miss for the Reds this season, having not played for Liverpool since August.

He also said he is working hard to get back to fitness having broken down with thigh and calf injuries during his spell on the sidelines.

Finally, former defender Jamie Carragher has said he fears for the future of Brendan Rodgers with the club currently sitting in 10th place, and finishing in the top four fast becoming something of a pipe dream for the Reds.

He said after yesterday's game: "Brendan Rodgers is under pressure. The owners were ruthless with Kenny [Dalglish] and Roy [Hodgson].

"You go out against Bournemouth [in Wednesday's Capital One Cup quarter-final] and then you have Arsenal. He was manager of the year but he has to get results.

"You expect them to do well after spending that kind of money. They are looking to be in the top four but they have failed in the Champions League."
