Legend: Liverpool Officially In Crisis

Former Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson believes that the club have reached crisis point. Roy Hodgson faces an unenviable task in turning around fortunes in Anfield after taking just six points from the Reds' opening seven league games whilst defeats to Northampton and newly- promoted Blackpool have seen the Kop quickly turn against their new manager. And Lawrenson, who counts five championships and one European Cup amongst his illustrious Anfield honour roll, also fears that there is little that can be done to reverse the current damage. "I really didn't think Liverpool, even in these trying times, would plummet to these depths," he told the Daily Post. "I really thought that a game against Blackpool at home would be the perfect chance to get things back on an even keel and I imagine most supporters saw it that way too. "So for them to come to Anfield and win comfortably and outplay a Liverpool side lacking so much in desire means it is officially time to worry. "It's officially a crisis. "What is even more depressing is, I'm not even sure what can be done about it. "It's not like you can sign a couple of players to turn things round any more. "Which is a shame because the new players here aren't doing it and some of the old players aren't up to it. "It's clear that Liverpool have been relying on their top stars for too long, and now the mediocrity in the squad is being exposed."
