This is something that has recently been advised by UEFA, who recently stated that leagues should not cancel their season’s and wait. They also stated that they are looking to resume plans from July, which they feel will be an appropriate time. UEFA have also recently written to the different associations across Europe on how best to tackle the growing issues that are arising due to the pandemic. This comes as Belgium have cancelled their season and awarded Club Brugge with the title.
One team that will certainly be looking for the return of the Premier league sooner than later is Liverpool. They are all but set to win their 19th first division title and first since back in 1990. Punters have been looking at the different bookmakers reviews and supported them with a number of firms for future success, considering how well they have performed this season. This will of course be their first Premier league title since its inauguration in 1992, so it has been a very long wait for the clubs fans. Also, considering how close they came to the title last season, when losing out by a point to Manchester City, will the title race going down to the final match of the season.
This season has been a completely different story and Liverpool have been a dominant force from the outset. Following the opening 29 matches played, they have won 27 matches, drew one and lost just one. The draw coming in the early period of the season, when they played out a 1-1 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford. The side then appeared to be heading for an unbeaten season, before the surprise recent 3-0 away loss to Watford. The latter are in the midst of a relegation battle, which is why it was such as shock. Since then Liverpool have also been knocked out of the Champions league by Atletico Madrid, which ended their attempt to defend the title.
Liverpool have just nine games left to finish the campaign and have a 25 point lead over Manchester City, who have a game in hand. This means Liverpool need just two more victories in order to land the title, and that is if Manchester City win their remaining ten matches in succession. Liverpool will still be looking to finish strong, that includes matches against Everton, Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea.
It all sets up for a fascinating finish to the season, which we open will return sooner than later!
