Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says he is not frightened by the prospect of losing his job, adding that the pressure drives him on.
Rodgers is under intense scrutiny after four league games without a win.
He says he is better at his job now than when he took over in June 2012.
Asked if his job was in danger, Rodgers said: “I’m never complacent enough to think that it has never been. It’s probably what drives a manager on, that fear. Positive fear.”
He added: “Every day you need to be at your best and when you come into here, into a club of this stature, that is always there. It doesn’t frighten me, I have an inherent belief in what I do.”
