Can Brendan Rogers build a dynasty at Anfield?

Liverpool are somewhere Brendan Rodgers didn't expect them to be. That's a real advantage for them in truth. Everyone expects Chelsea and Manchester City to do it, so there's added pressure on both teams whereas for Liverpool, if they don't win it, what have they really failed?

Liverpool realistically were aiming to get back into Europe. Whether that be the Champions League or the Europa League. It's pretty much certain to say they're in the Champions League. In my opinion the top four right now, will finish in the Champions League spots. 

Liverpool have been a force to be reckoned with this season. They've looked fairly convincing when put up against the tough teams. Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge dubbed 'SAS' have been nothing more than awe inspiring whilst watching them.

Sturridge has cemented a place for himself in the England squad this summer, the next step for him is to actually score consistently for England.

Rodgers can build something special at Anfield now. He'll likely be given a fair bit of coin to use this summer, the Merseyside fliers are sky high right now, and I doubt that many players would turn down an opportunity to go up North in England to the historical city.

Rodgers has embraced youth development with Jordan Henderson learning how to play football, (just joking Jordan, I rate you really) and Raheem Sterling being as convincing as ever. He's invested in players like Philippe Coutinho, and has brought the best out of Jon Flanagan. I don't see where I can fault Rodgers in all honesty, unlike the other top four managers where I can fault them in a lot of things.

Manuel Pellegrini, why would you pick Martin Demichelis? Why did you play 4-4-2 when it obviously wasn't working, and for God sake why don't you start Stevan Jovetic?

Jose Mourinho, his ego has let him down on several occasions this season, they could've been top of the league and running away with it, but with losses at Crystal Palace, Stoke City and with Liverpool to still come, many will question whether Chelsea have done enough and can do enough to win it.

Arsene Wenger... Well, let's leave it at 'Wenger'.

Rodgers can't be faulted, he's deployed Gerrard in a deeper role, and despite pinching my arms a few times, he's actually made it work, Gerrard's been an Andrea Pirlo-like figure for Liverpool, and judging by how well Juventus do with that one pivotal player, I think more teams should adopt that style of play, as it just works.

Reported on ESPN, Gerrard though, remains adamant that the league isn't Liverpool's just yet: "I am not convinced [Liverpool will win the league] just yet.

"We have very hard games to go, we've got a huge game next week. We've got to give everything we can."

Though, I think they will win the league, and if Arsenal can win the FA Cup it's a season I can look back on and say... 'Well, you know what, that's the first time I'm happy for the champions'.

What do you think, can Liverpool go all the way?
