Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said that his side will come back stronger next season regardless of who is crowned Premier League champions, ESPN reports.

Liverpool had their first Premier League title in their hands before a 2-0 loss to Chelsea and a 3-3 draw to Crystal Palace handed Manchester City the initiative going into the final day of the season.

With the Premier League title now looking unlikely for the Reds, Rodgers has vowed that the team will come back with a stronger challenge next season.

"The Palace game was probably the lowest I have felt in football, and you could see in the faces of the players how it affected them," said Rodgers.

"But a great deal of learning will come out of that game. It is a great reference point for the likes of Jon Flanagan, Raheem Sterling, Joe Allen and Philippe Coutinho.

"All of these players are going to go through this again and they are going to be better prepared for it.

"This is one of the best pushes for the league we have had as a club for 24 years, and you never know. We are still in it to the very end of the season, it's certainly not over.

"But if it doesn't work out, we will learn from those experiences and I can guarantee we will be better next time.

Despite the side’s late capitulation this season, the 41-year-old is adamant that he wants the side challenging next year and to build further on the success of this year.

Rodgers admitted that half the battle was believing that they could win it and after the performances he has seen he knows that they are ready to challenge not only the Premier League title but also the Champions League.

"We want to be challenging at the top of the league, and the biggest thing that comes out of this season is belief. Can you imagine Jordan Henderson, Sterling, Flanagan, Coutinho, even Steven Gerrard - all of the players can actually believe now.

"We have been going on about it all season, but when they go away and reflect, they will actually know we can do it. That is half the battle."
