Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has warned the Premier League: "We're on the move".
Rodgers is confident his charges will only continue to improve over the coming weeks and indeed years.
"We're not far," he told liverpoolfc.com. "It's only seven points to the top four.
"And one thing is for sure; we are going to get better. We are on the move. It's a steep climb for us, but we're climbing steadily, and I would rather do that than be a flash in the pan where we drop off and are back to square one again.
"For us, it's about getting a way of playing in place which will serve us well going forward. We've made changes throughout the club, in the Academy structure this week. Rodolfo [Borrell], who has a way of thinking that is very similar to mine, has moved up and we've got Alex [Inglethorpe] in to coach the reserves.
"That will drip feed its way through the club, and we then have a vision that will serve us well in the future."
