There are many football fans that believe Liverpool are a club that will never win the coveted Premier League trophy - but let's weigh up their chances of at least getting closer next season.
Here are the key factors that will contribute to the rise of the Reds.
Under the direction of Brendan Rodgers, Liverpool's transfer decisions have improved dramatically, with four signings already confirmed this summer.
With more support from the owners Liverpool will soon have a squad that has skilled players all over the pitch.
Daniel Sturridge, Raheem Sterling and Philippe Coutinho, to name a few of the higher-profile prospects in Rodgers' squad, show that the future is bright. The talent in the reserve and academy sides is also of a high standard - another reason for optimism at Anfield.
Although perhaps a surprise appointment at the beginning of last season, his level-headed, intelligent and tactical awareness means Liverpool have the right man in the hottest.
With the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, many predict that Manchester United's dominance in England over the last two decades is due to come to an end. Arsenal have not won a trophy for eight years, so Liverpool's could edge closer towards the top of the table.
With Liverpool having one of the youngest squads in the Premier League, experience from Daniel Agger, Martin Skrtel, Kolo Toure and, of course, captain Steven Gerrard, will have a positive effect on the youngsters in the squad.
The fans play a huge role at any club but none more so than Liverpool.
Commonly referred to as the best fans in the world, if they get behind the team, they can help drive the club back to the top.
