Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers insists his side will not alter their attacking approach in next season's Champions League.

The club finished the 2013/14 season in second place after a campaign where the scintillating football instilled by Rodgers almost saw them clinch their first league title in 24 years.

The Reds had their Premier League fate in their owns hands heading into their penultimate game of the season against Crystal Palace but surrendered a three goal lead to draw 3-3 at Selhurst Park, a result that allowed Manchester City to claw their way back to the summit of English football.

Liverpool's cavalier football has produced sensational wins over Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United this season but that vibrant attacking approach has also seen them leak goals at the back having conceded 50 this season, the worst record out of clubs in the top five.

The club will enter the Champions League for the first time since the 2009/10 season next September and there have been suggestions that Rodgers must exercise more caution against the best the continent has to offer.

But while he admits his side have struggled defensively this season, the Reds manager insists he won't be changing his tactics in Europe and will approach each game with the same attacking intent he has domestically this season.

"The style will only be enhanced and improved. It doesn't change," Rodgers told the club's official website.

"The philosophy here is very much based on attacking creative football to win. We know where we need to improve. We've conceded too many goals when we've scored five or six and that has cost us.

"We are going into the Champions League, an outstanding competition with some great teams. But we will go in with the same idea. There will be no fear. We'll look forward to it."

In securing their best ever Premier League finish with 84 points – two adrift of champions City – Liverpool also scored 101 league goals.
