Liverpool’s calamitous season hit a new low last week with disappointing draws against Sevilla and Chelsea.

“Are you telling me if Liverpool were in front in the dying seconds of a game to win the title or the Champions League, he wouldn’t want them doing everything to see it through?

“This is the man who said he could produce a book on defending in two hours — but they are still leaking plenty of stupid goals.

Liverpool will be aiming to hold onto a lead when they go up against Stoke tomorrow (8pm).

They currently sit sixth in the league…
