Odds just dropped massively on Brendan Rodgers being replaced by this top European manager after 3-0 defeat

Is the axe being sharpened?

What the hell happened to Liverpool?

The Merseysiders’ start to the season hasn’t exactly been electric – but certainly solid, with a decent seven points from three opening games.

But then went and destroyed this solid foundation with a devastating 3-0, erm, hammering, at home to West Ham. At home!

To put the victory into context, it’s the first time the Hammers have beaten a Liverpool side at Anfield for 52 years.

This embarrassing defeat has seen odds plunge on Rodgers to get the sack – and there’s one man in the frame.

Former Borussia Dortmund boss Jürgen Klopp is now at 2/1 to be the new Liverpool boss should Rodgers get the chop.

Frank De Boer and Carlo Ancelotti are also in the mix at around 7/2 and 7/1 respectively, but Klopp seems a perfect fit at Anfield and could be a fans’ favourite.

With Manchester United up next, we might find out sooner rather than later.
