The Merseysiders have failed to reach the dizzy heights of last season's impressive second placed finish, as they currently lie 18 points off the leaders Chelsea in 12th position.
"Without him (Suarez) last season they would have finished seventh at the end of the day.
"And now without him they are around about where they have been for the four seasons prior to last when they were second.
"Liverpool have consistently finished in the Europa League positions and when I look at their squad now that's where I think they'll finish.
"I still think he (Rodgers) is the right man for the job though and should be given more time, but understandably at the moment he is under pressure."
