The Reds are guaranteed finishing seventh in the Premier League table this time around and, on Sunday, stretched their unbeaten run to seven matches with a 3-1 victory at Fulham.

And the Liverpool boss said: "I think we can have an exciting season next year.

"We can build towards that but we need more depth, we need some more (players) in the summer.

"If we can do that we will be looking to make a real sustainable challenge next year for the top four."

The Anfield club are 30 points behind Manchester United and have not been English champions for 23 years.
