The Premier League has been suspended since March 9 due to the coronavirus outbreak that has halted not only sporting events, but major events across the globe.

The initial resumption plan made by the Premier League was for football to resume by April 4, but even that was far from achievable. The Premier League went on to set a resumption date of April 30, but it’s hard to see how that can be achieved, as the coronavirus pandemic still rages on.

There have been so many theories as what will happen in the Premier League, and the Belgium League has decided to end their season, with Club Brugge named as champions.

According to the Mirror, Premier League are in ‘advanced talks’ with the government over plans to resume the season in June and will definitely find a way to end the season.

Meanwhile, UEFA president Aleksandr Ceferin “can’t see a way” where Liverpool will not be crowned Premier League champions this season.

“I can’t see a way Liverpool could be left without a title,” he said.

“If the Premier League resumes play, Liverpool will almost certainly win the title. Theoretically it’s not all over, but practically Liverpool are on the verge of it.

“If by any chance the play will not resume, we still have to find a way to declare final results, to declare champions.

“And again I cannot see, I cannot imagine a scenario, in which the champions would not be Liverpool.”
