Winning the title this season would “mean everything” to Liverpool fans, according to Reds legend Ian Rush.

Brendan Rodgers’ side moved to the top of the Premier League table on Sunday thanks to a comprehensive 4-0 victory over Tottenham at Anfield.

With Chelsea and Manchester City still due to travel to Anfield before the season is out, Liverpool will snatch the title if they win all of their remaining games.

And Rush believes that the Anfield faithful would take winning the Premier League ahead of lifting the Champions League.

“If you asked supporters whether they wanted to win the Champions League or the league title, they’d say the Premier League,” Rush told talkSPORT.

“That’s what it means to the supporters. It would mean everything to win the title.

“Just look at the atmosphere against Tottenham. After the game the players were walking off and there was a mighty roar as if to say, ‘we believe you can do it, we’re right behind you’.”
