Mohamed Salah scores and celebrates Liverpool’s goal at Bournemouth
British newspaper “Daily Telegraph” claims that Liverpool will be crowned champions of the Premier League if the competition is not completed.
The English Premier League announced the disruption of the English Premier League until the beginning of next April, for fear of spreading the Corona virus. It was the longest pause in competition history since the end of World War II in 1945.
According to the English Premier League rules, there is nothing to determine the way to deal with the suspension of the league championship before its completion for reasons other than war.
Liverpool will be the most affected team in England if the league is canceled, as the team is only 6 points away from crowning the title for the first time in 30 years.
“There are a lot of things at stake now. There is a focus on whether Liverpool will be the champion of the competition, but this has nothing to do with the course of events,” one Premier League club representative – who has not disclosed – told the Daily Telegraph.
“Our intention so far is to return and complete the competition, but no one knows what will happen in the future,” he said.
The English Premier League put together a plan to return the tournament on April 3, with April 3, with dates for the postponed matches to be revealed on the day the competition returns.
Next, with Arsenal coach Michael Artita infected with the Coruna virus, among the seven clubs that have been affected so far and forced to establish medical isolation for their players, the return on this date appears to be a source of doubt.
Liverpool tops the Premier League standings with 82 points after 29 rounds, 25 points behind second-placed Manchester City.
