Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp is the second favourite to get sacked following their 1-0 loss to Fulham over the weekend in the Premier League with Sky Bet claiming that the odds for him to get his marching orders is high.

The shift in odds comes after Liverpool’s incredible downturn in form continued with aa sixth-straight home defeat that extended an unwanted club record for Klopp's men who had gone almost four years unbeaten at home in the league prior to this run.

The Reds are currently placed eighth with 43 points from 28 games, four points behind Chelsea in the race for the top four and with Klopp's men hosting RB Leipzig in a Champions League last-16 second leg on Wednesday, defending a 2-0 lead, with their season hanging by a thread.

Their struggles have seen Klopp's future come under the kosh with Reds legend, Steven Gerrard being tipped for the job, with the former England skipper leading Rangers to their first league title in a decade.

Having spent so long in the shadow of their bitter rivals, Gers have now cantered to the title with six games to spare and will have the chance to rub their bitter rivals’ faces in it in two weeks’ time as they walk out at Celtic Park having already smashed the Hoops’ reign of dominance.
