Cape Town - Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has given his support to Reds manager Brendan Rodgers, at least until the end of the season, reports Football411.

"Judge this team and Brendan Rodgers at the end of the season," Carragher said on Sky Sports. "What he did last season is enough in the bank to get him through until then. But it's got to improve."

Carragher admits that Rodgers should be under pressure, but thinks the club must focus on improving their form instead of pointing fingers.

He added: "When you spend £150m and have the worst start in 50 years, you're going to be under pressure. But now is not the time to be talking about the manager."

Despite Liverpool's 3-0 loss to Manchester United on Sunday, when he thought individual errors cost his former team, Carragher was able to take some positives away from the game.

"I've not been part of a team that has come to Old Trafford and created that many chances, but you've got to defend well too," he said. "It's not something new under Rodgers and it's got to stop. Eradicate the individual errors."

Rodgers will be hoping to fix the confidence of his defence before Sunday when Arsenal visit Anfield.
