Football Fans Show Mixed Reactions On If Liverpool Should Be Crowned Champions If The Current Premier League Season Is Cancelled.

The Premier league fans have shown mixed reactions following news that if the Premier League fails to resume on the scheduled date or be abolished this season amid the Coronavirus Pandemic, Liverpool should be crowned champions nontheless.

CloudNine Sports had earlier reported that the Premier League in Friday, reached a decision to suspend the league, after several reports that some Premier League clubs have members of staff, including players and coaches, that are currently displaying symptoms of the virus.

Liverpool who seems to finally lift the Premier League title in 30 years when they play their next match in the Merseyside Derby away to Everton next Monday, will have to wait until when the League resumes back on 4th April.

Jurgen Klopp's men only need six points to win the Premier League, but can now eventually secure the title with a win against reigning champions Manchester City at the Etihad stadium, which will now be their next match on resumption of the League next month.

Several Premier League fans remain concerned raising questions like if eventually the League fails to resume as planned which could lead to an eventual annulment of the season, should the Champions Elect Liverpool be crowned Champions?

The Premier League chiefs are set to hold discussions on what would be done if they were forced to end the season early.

Liverpool could be denied their first league title in 30 years if 14 Premier League clubs agree to axe the season.

According to the UK Telegraph there would be “no guarantee” that Liverpool would be crowned champions, if the current season was cut short.

There are no set regulations in the rule book, of what would happen should the competition be cancelled early. So it is not clear at this moment, how relegation and promotion will be sorted out.

Also, how will qualification for the Champions League, Europa League and other domestic and international competitions be determined?
