Brendan Rodgers expects Liverpool's return to Champions League football to attract players to Anfield this summer as the boss plots the most effective way to compete on simultaneous fronts.

A 3-2 victory over Norwich City three weeks ago ensured that the Reds will participate in Europe's elite club competition next season, ending a period of five years outside the tournament.

Midweek nights in action will therefore become a regular fixture on the agenda during 2014-15, adding to the team's standard commitments and ambitions in the Barclays Premier League and cups.

The boss explained: "There are going to be games next season in all of the competitions, Premier League, Champions League, when we're going to need to be able to change the game.

"I have tried to do that this year with systems and different tweaks but next year, it will be with personnel - and that will be important for us.

"We have started games amazingly well; we have been up in a lot of games before the hour mark and not been able to manage the games through."

A campaign which exceeded expectations of everyone linked with Liverpool has carried the Reds to a position where the championship could possibly still be lifted on the final day of the season.

Three points against Newcastle United would at the very least secure second place in the Premier League for the side, who have arguably produced the finest football witnessed in the division.

And that combination of factors gives Rodgers confidence that the club can enter the transfer market during the summer with a greater array of selling points than before.

"We will get players in that I think can improve us," added the Northern Irishman. "I think we are a really attractive proposition to players throughout Europe.

"We are right on the football map now but we have got work to do. There is no doubt that the Champions League helps you a great deal."
