Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said before kick-off: "I'm never complacent enough to think my job has never been (in danger). That's what drives a manager on - that fear, positive fear.

"But it doesn't frighten me. I've got an inherent belief in what I do but I don't shy away from the fact that you need to get results and be performing well to try and stay and work."
