Hodgson arrives at Liverpool training

Under-pressure Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson arrived at the club’s Melwood training ground this morning to continue preparations for Sunday’s FA Cup tie at Manchester United.

Under-pressure Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson arrived at the club’s Melwood training ground this morning to continue preparations for Sunday’s FA Cup tie at Manchester United.

The 63-year-old’s position has become the subject of intense speculation following Wednesday’s 3-1 defeat to Blackburn – their ninth in the Barclays Premier League this season.

However, with heavy snow falling, Hodgson drove into Melwood at 9.40am past a couple of television cameras and photographers.

The gates of the training ground were immediately closed but reopened once Hodgson had walked the short distance from his car to the building, where most of his players were already housed having already arrived earlier.

Hodgson is this afternoon due to give his pre-match press conference ahead of the trip to Old Trafford.
