Robbie Savage has backed Brendan Rodgers to turn Liverpool's poor start to the season around.
However, Savage has reminded those that are criticising Rodgers that the Northern Irishman "performed absolute miracles last season".
"Yes, Liverpool have made a patchy start this season, but they deserved to win the Merseyside derby last weekend," Savage told The Mirror.
"If you take Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge out of Liverpool's team, of course they are going to find it hard to adjust. Suarez jumping ship to Barcelona and Sturridge's injury are not Rodgers' fault.
"Rodgers performed absolute miracles last season in finishing second and coming within a whisker of winning the title. There may be the odd slip while Liverpool adjust to life without Suarez, but Rodgers will get it right. I still expect them to challenge for a top-four finish."
