More Drama, Another Draw for Liverpool

Amid protests and a worsening ownership situation, Liverpool fell further behind in the league standings on Monday, drawing 2-2 at home to Aston Villa. The fifth-place Reds needed a late equalizer from Peter Crouch to salvage a point; Liverpool has now drawn its last four games and sits 14 points behind leaders Manchester United and Arsenal.

Meanwhile, reports in England claim that time is running out for Tom Hicks and George Gillett, the club's American owners, to secure a refinancing plan for the massive $700 million debt the pair incurred after taking the reins at Anfield last February. Should the deal collapse -- and we will know by the end of the week -- the Americans could be forced to sell out to Dubai International Capital, an Arab investment firm.

During the match, Liverpool supporters protested the American owners and voiced their support for Manager Rafael Benitez. Afterwards, a visibly frustrated Steven Gerrard suggested the off-field turmoil has been affecting the players' performance. "It is not just this week, it has been going on for some time and it is certainly not helping the players," Gerrard told Setanta Sports.
