Speculation about Rodgers' position has been mounting, with Liverpool great Mark Lawrenson claiming that one defeat from the games against Villa, FC Sion and Derby rivals Everton would result in the manager's dismissal.Former club captains Jamie Carragher, Graeme Souness and Jamie Redknapp have also been critical of Rodgers, fueling rumors that he could be replaced by a leading manager such as Carlo Ancelotti or Juergen Klopp.But after Saturday's win against Villa, Rodgers said:Liverpool had gone four league games without victory and needed penalties to overcome fourth-tier Carlisle United in the League Cup in midweek.The 26-year-old's brilliantly taken brace came in a 12-minute second-half period that also saw Villa striker Rudy Gestede net twice and ultimately proved enough to secure victory. The flurry of goals followed James Milner handing Liverpool the lead after just 66 seconds.
