Everton defender Sylvain Distin will happily help Liverpool win the title if it means he can play in the Champions League next season.

The Reds sit two points clear at the top of the Premier League table with five games to play, while the Toffees are one point off Arsenal in fourth, which comes with a place in the qualifying rounds of next season's Champions League.

Therefore, there is a chance that Everton could go into their penultimate game, against title contenders Manchester City, knowing that a win would not only see them qualify for the Champions League, but also result in Liverpool being crowned champions.

"We've spoken about it with some of the staff," Distin confirmed. "The funny thing is, some people would rather we don't get Champions League as long as [Liverpool] don't win the league. It's mad!

"Personally, I'd rather be in the Champions League. You can't miss a chance for that. It would be amazing for the city if both clubs made it. I think deep down both sets of fans would like it if both clubs were in it."
