Liverpool media round-up: Latest Klopp rumour, Firmino injury blow, Ings confident big win not far away

Welcome To Anfield

A selection of the latest stories in the media involving Liverpool Football Club this Friday morning.

The pressure on Brendan Rodgers continues to mount, with former Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp's name in the frame as a potential replacement, according to the Daily Mail.

They say the German will relish the opportunity to turn around the fortunes of the club, who have got off to a poor start to the season, including seeing them struggle through a League Cup tie against Carlisle United on Wednesday night, when the Reds needed penalties to see off the League Two side.

The Mail does say that no contact has been made by Liverpool's owners FSG with Klopp, despite the difficult start to the season. 

Danny Ings has acknowledged the pressure that the club and Brendan Rodgers are under in an interview with the Liverpool Echo, and has said the side are desperate to get a couple of wins under their belts in order to raise morale, and thinks there is a big result not far away which could be the catalyst to turning their season around.

He said: “It is important that we get wins under our belt for him and for us so we can move forward.

“All you need to look at is the chances we are creating. You can just sense there is a big result around the corner.

“I can certainly feel it playing in the side and I am sure the lads feel the same as well. I think things are going to turn for us now.”

There has been a further blow for Liverpool, with summer signing Roberto Firmino possibly sidelined for three weeks, according to the Liverpool Echo.

Firmino fell awkwardly and landed on his back during the cup tie with against Carlisle and left the field before half time, meaning he has been withdrawn from the Brazil squad for their internationals which take place in two weeks' time.
