Roy Hodgson looks set to remain as Liverpool manager this weekend after the club's American owners took no decision over his future.
Friday's media conference ahead of Sunday's FA Cup clash with Manchester United will be hosted by Hodgson.
But the 63-year-old's job remains in the balance following their 3-1 loss to Blackburn on Wednesday.
That defeat left the 18-time English champions 12th in the Premier League, four points above the relegation zone.
The former Fulham manager's future was the subject of a series of trans-Atlantic phone calls on Thursday, involving Liverpool's American owners the Fenway Sports Group, director of football strategy Damien Comolli and other senior officials.
Liverpool do not currently have a chief executive, which may partly explain the lack of a decision one way or the other, but Hodgson is expected to be replaced as soon as a successor is identified.
Club legend Kenny Dalglish, who many Liverpool fans want installed in Hodgson's place, is currently out of the country and is not expected to return until next week.
Hodgson will now have what appears to be one last chance to save his job, against rivals Manchester United.
