Brendan Rodgers is in a difficult position. With his job on the line and his team continuing to struggle, he's had to field tough questions on a weekly basis. His post-match conference after a disheartening draw to Norwich kept with the trend of uncomfortable conversations with the media, as he voiced his frustrations with the performance.

"It is disappointing and frustrating not to get the three points," Rodgers said.

"First half we were a wee bit static I felt, we had the ball in decent positions but the movement in front of the ball wasn't as we'd like," he continued. "Second half we freed ourselves up. Danny Ings coming on was outstanding, his pressing and ability to run in behind was there to see."

"We had chances to win the game but didn't take them. Our supporters were brilliant and sensed the shackles were lifted from the players after the opening goal."

"But you have got to be clinical and we didn't take those chances. In terms of numbers it's not so good but for me it's all about the performance."

Rodgers also provided an update on Christian Benteke, who was forced off at half time with an injury.

"His hamstring felt a bit tight so there was no point in risking it with fresh players on the side," he said.
