If Liverpool fans were used to one thing from the first quarter century of the Premier League, it was their beloved Reds suffering a slump after finishing second in the league.

It happened in 2002/03, 2009/10, and unfortunately for Brendan Rodgers, it also occurred in 2014/15.

A big part of the problem that season was a struggle to score goals.

Six years ago this week, Rodgers made the Aston Villa man the second most expensive transfer in Liverpool history.

Villa took the lead in the second half at Wembley, and Rodgers made multiple tactical and formation shifts but to no avail.

That pair had almost powered Liverpool to the title in 2013/14 by scoring 52 league goals between them, but the following season the whole team only managed 10 more than that.

Many Liverpool fans would have sacked Rodgers that summer, others felt he deserved a chance to redeem himself thanks to what he had achieved in 2013/14.
