Under-pressure Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson arrived at the club's Melwood training ground on Friday morning to continue preparations for Sunday's FA Cup tie at Manchester United.
The 63-year-old's position has become the subject of intense speculation following Wednesday's 3-1 defeat to Blackburn - their ninth in the Barclays Premier League this season.
However, with heavy snow falling, Hodgson drove into Melwood at 9.40am past a couple of television cameras and photographers.
The gates of the training ground were immediately closed but reopened once Hodgson had walked the short distance from his car to the building, where most of his players were already housed having already arrived earlier.
Hodgson is this afternoon due to give his pre-match press conference ahead of the trip to Old Trafford.
Liverpool's owners New England Sports Ventures have reportedly been looking at their possible options for a managerial change for over a week now.
They had intended to see out the season with Hodgson before reassessing the situation but recent results - defeats to Rovers and Wolves - and the deteriorating relationship with fans and associated falling attendances have apparently prompted a rethink.
But, having survived the immediate aftermath of the embarrassment at Ewood Park it seems Hodgson will still be in charge for Sunday's FA Cup tie against their arch-rivals.
Should Liverpool lose that it will leave them with just the Europa League to play for as they suffered a humiliating Carling Cup exit to League Two Northampton and are well off the pace for a top-four finish.
