No one better to do the job - Rodgers

London - Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers insists he is the right man for the job amid mounting pressure after a poor start to the season and a visit to in-form arch-rivals Manchester United on Sunday.

Rodgers's side are currently ninth in the Premier League with 21 points, 15 adrift of leaders Chelsea and have struggled to rediscover the form that fired them to second in the table last season

They visit Old Trafford having won two of their previous six league games and after suffering an early Champions League group exit after a drab 1-1 home draw with FC Basel on Tuesday.

"I think the message from me is clear. I don't think there would be anyone better to do the job here," Rodgers told reporters.

"Seven months ago we nearly won the title unexpectedly, I had time to work with players and we took them beyond where the club has been in a long time.

"This has been a difficult start with new players, less coaching time, young players; we are virtually starting again.

"I don't think there is anybody better equipped to deal with that having been here for the last two and a half years and experienced what this club is about and seeing what we get from the players whenever we are at our best."
