Premier League could be ended, Liverpool awarded title

The Premier League season could end in the coming days, several sources say.

COVID-19 stops the sporting world

With COVID-19 having brought the world to an almost complete standstill, and with no respite in sight, many footballs’ governing bodies, including Premer League, still held hope that they could complete this season in the coming weeks.

However, the situation is not improving. Infections of COVID-19 are hitting highs in many places around the world. Thus, the risk remains high.

Human life a priority over football

Thus, it was not surprising then, when FA chairman Greg Clarke said on Tuesday that there could be a possibility of the Premier League ending the current season.

The chairman told the website that the focus was shifting from football to human lives.

“We are committed to finishing the professional football season as this resolves the issue of promotion and relegation together with title winners[…]However, we may not be able to finish the season as football is not our priority, human life is, and we will do as the government directs as the pandemic unfolds.” Clarke told the FA website.

The Premier League had on Friday suspended the league indefinitely as they looked to see how the pandemic unfolds.

Liverpool could still be champions

If the Premier League decides to end the season, many questioned whether Liverpool would then be given the title. The Reds hold an almost insurmountable 25-point lead over Manchester City.

Liverpool is practically close to winning the league, needing only two points. While Manchester City could mathematically win it still, it remains improbable.

Liverpool has been almost invincible all season long. It is unimaginable then, that they could lose all their remaining games.

UEFA President Aleksander Caferin stated that the Premier League was practically in Liverpool’s hands and that there was no way they would not be handed the title.
