Question marks leading up to the Champions League game with Swiss side Basel on Tuesday evening had already begun after the Merseyside club continued their poor form with another dismal performance in the Premier League at the weekend against Sunderland.

Boss Brendan Rodgers has been heavily tipped to be sacked in the coming weeks should he fail to pick up his side and find consistency.

However, a draw in the Champions League against Basel on Tuesday evening has seen the Northern Irish coach further criticised.

Rodgers played a key part in Liverpool's success last season, having developed an attractive brand of Football, which only the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid dare to play.

His philosophies were clear and easy to understand, helping the likes of Steven Gerrard, Jordan Henderson and Raheem Sterling thrive at the club last season, pushing Manchester City for the title.

A big reason for that success was Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez, who combined to score countless goals.

However, the former has been injured and the latter has now been sold to Barcelona.

Whilst, sales cannot be blamed, although will be; Rodgers has failed to maintain the same philosophy at the club - no more pressing, less passing and triangular movement, plus less drive, passion and desire to win games.

Watching the game against Basel on Tuesday night, I was astonished to hear the Swiss fans singing louder than that of a packed Anfield.

Why? What have the fans disliked... Are they bored of Rodgers' ideas and changes on a matchday.

I would think so yes - the former Swansea City man has lost the grip of his side, it is hard to understand but it feels like he has lost all confidence in the same players who helped him last season push Man City for the title.

He now faces a real dilemma, both personally and with the team.

Rodgers could be sacked and their are already reports linking him with an exit, but what the coach actually wants is still unknown.

Unknown it may be - but fail to win this coming Saturday and Rodgers could be facing the dreaded sack.
