Liverpool fans are extremely unhappy following their side's poor start to the Premier League season. 

The Reds have picked up eight points from a possible 18 so far this campaign and the Anfield faithful are becoming restless after seeing their side claim just one point in their last three matches.

But who do the fans blame for Liverpool's current plight, is it the players or is it Brendan Rodgers?

Well, according to a recent survey conducted by fan opinion app Forza Football, the blame firmly lies with the Northern Irish manager. 

Almost 13,000 votes were cast in the poll and only 37% of fans said they had confidence in their manager while 58% do in fact have faith in the current playing squad. 

Rodgers is coming under increased pressure after their poor start, and their failure to qualify for the Champions League last season means patience is wearing thin.

Sections of Liverpool's support have called for the manager to be sacked with either Carlo Ancelotti or Jurgen Klopp replacing him. 

However, the powers that be at Anfield have remained loyal to Rodgers following productive talks over the summer. 

Although, results can not continue in their current fashion if the former Swansea City boss wishes to remain at the helm on Merseyside. 

Rodgers obviously feels he is the man to get Liverpool out of their current predicament, however, that confidence is not echoed by supporters.

His hopes of turning around the Reds' fortunes took another blow after it was revealed top goalscorer Christian Benteke is out with a hamstring problem.

The Belgian could return for the Merseyside derby in October and with fixtures against Tottenham and Chelsea to come, it is shaping up to be Rodgers' biggest month in charge of Liverpool.

What do you think, is Brendan Rodgers the right man for Liverpool? Have your say below!
