Runaway Premier League leaders Liverpool ‘would NOT be guaranteed the title if the Government orders sports events to be cancelled to combat the spread of coronavirus’

Despite being 22 points clear, Liverpool could yet miss out on the Premier League title if coronavirus cuts short the season. 

Jurgen Klopp’s side have ‘no guarantee’ that they would still be crowned champions should the season end prematurely due to the scale of the virus outbreak, according to the Telegraph. 

The report goes further to detail that ‘no specific regulation’ is in place should such a scenario play out that all 38 top-flight games are incomplete and it could see all three teams in the relegation zone reprieved.
