Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has insisted that his side will head into next season’s Champions League with an attacking and fearless attitude.

The Reds, who finished the Premier League season in second spot with 84 points from 38 fixtures, following their 2-1 win over Newcastle United yesterday, were assured of Champions League qualification some rounds ago.

Although the Anfield club were an exciting team to watch, having scored 101 league goals this season, only second to Manchester City’s tally of 102, the Merseyside giants’ conceded 50 goals, the most amongst the top five clubs.

And Rodgers, who admitted that his side conceded “too many goals”, however, revealed that Liverpool will aim to play the same attacking brand of football in the continental tournament.


"The style will only be enhanced and improved. It doesn't change”, the Northern Irishman told his club’s official site.

“The philosophy here is very much based on attacking creative football to win. We know where we need to improve.

"We've conceded too many goals when we've scored five or six and that has cost us.

“We're going into the Champions League, an outstanding competition with some great teams. But we'll go in with the same idea. There will be no fear. We'll look forward to it.”
