Rodgers: Blame Me

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has taken the responsibility for Sunday’s loss away to Hull – the first ever to the Tigers in the Merseyside club’s history.

“If there is anyone to blame, blame me as the manager,” Rodgers told English media.

“When we lose a game we all get criticised but the criticism has to come to the manager, I am responsible because I pick the team.”

But the former Mourinho protege also acknowledged that “our form has been very good so I can’t criticise the players too much.”

Despite the unexpected loss Liverpool had a great start into the 2013/14 season. They collected eight more points than after 13 game weeks in the previous season and this even though they missed their star player Luiz Suarez for the first five league games.

However, a recent injury blow by nine goal striker Daniel Sturridge already proved the Merseyside will miss him over a busy December month.

Liverpool has the chance to bounce back with two consecutive home fixtures against Norwich on Wednesday and West Ham on Saturday. Afterwards they travel to Tottenham and welcome Cardiff to Anfield, before they close the year with two away trips to Man City and Chelsea.

This means a lot of work to do for The Reds if they want to stay amongst the top 4 at the turn of the year.
