Brendan Rodgers has faith that whatever unfolds on Sunday in the Barclays Premier League, his squad will have learned enough from this season to challenge consistently in the years to come.

Liverpool enter the final day of the campaign with a mathematical possibility of winning the championship, having produced nine months of scintillating and largely successful football.

The equation is straightforward for the Reds; firstly, they must record a victory over Newcastle United at Anfield and, if they do so, defeat for Manchester City would hand the title to Rodgers' side.

Three points at the expense of the Magpies would at the very least secure second place in the division ahead of Chelsea, following the sealing of qualification to the Champions League last month.

Those achievements inject not only a sense of pride but also one of ambition into the Northern Irishman, who, on the eve of the 2013-14 finale, predicted more to come from his talented charges.

"This is only the beginning for us," Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo. "This season isn't a one-off. I think there is an easy gauge on that - you only have to look at our progress.

"This will be arguably the best run at a title the club has had for 24 years. Steven Gerrard is 33 years of age and this is the closest he has got to winning it. This is his first real sample of a title run-in and he will be even better next season.

"Think of the experiences these players will have had; just think what Raheem Sterling is going to be like, what Jon Flanagan is going to be like, Jordan Henderson, Joe Allen, Philippe Coutinho...

"These are all young players. We are going to improve. Of course, I would expect the other teams to spend and improve but we will get better as well.

"History shows you it can be difficult juggling the different competitions, but being back in the Champions League is something we will relish. We have shown the significance of our development this season and we will be able to reinforce with quality in the summer. That will push us on again.

"The supporters have been allowed to dream this year and they will be able to continue doing that because we are going to get better."

The boss added: "If we win on Sunday and don't win the league but finish second, that means we've finished second to the richest and most expensive team in world sport.

"We will have taken them right to the wire. That will be a sign of the remarkable progress we have made this season."
