Liverpool legend John Barnes says if his old club win the title it will be the greatest in Premier League history.

The Reds need victory over Crystal Palace tonight to stay in contention.

"All of the Liverpool fans will be disappointed if Manchester City win the title but at the start of the season if you asked them if they would take fourth place they would have said yes," Barnes told PA Sport.

"They might win the title but if they don't they will finish second or third, just a couple of points off the top.

"That shows the club are moving in the right direction. It's not a failure at all.

"If they win the title it will be the biggest Premier League victory in history because Liverpool finished seventh last year and now they have the same players."
