Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers reportedly still has the backing of owners The Fenway Sports Group despite the club's dismal form in recent weeks.

According to the Daily Mail, principal owner John W Henry is not thinking of a replacement for the manager, despite the Reds slumping to their fourth consecutive defeat and third in a row in the Premier League.

Rodgers' men lost 3-1 to Crystal Palace at the weekend, and the former Swansea City boss hinted that his future at the club could be up for discussion following the run of poor results.

However, the report claims that the owners are willing to give the manager time to turn things around and will make a decision at the end of the season.

Rodgers, who won the LMA Manager of the Season award last season, for taking Liverpool within touching distance of the title, has failed to recreate the magic this season despite spending over £100m during the summer transfer window.

His team is struggling in 12th place having just scored 14 points in 12 games, making it their worst start in the Premier League in 22 years.

There were reports earlier in the month suggesting that the owners were considering the manager's future, and have identified qualification to the Champions League and progress beyond the group stages as the key solutions to Rodgers remaining at the helm at Anfield.

Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp has been touted as a replacement, if the owners decide to part ways with the Norther Irishman, but whatever be the case, the owners will only look at replacements at the end of the season.

The German manager had revealed earlier in the month that apart from his homeland, he would only like to manage in England as he is familiar with the language, which is key to his managerial success.
