Liverpool are edging closer to being crowned Premier League champions after UEFA relaxed their approach to European seasons finishing early.
The prospect of leagues being ‘voided’ is out of the question, with UEFA urging individual nations to decide for themselves which teams should be crowned champions if seasons cannot be completed because of the pandemic.
UEFA say decisions can be made on the basis of ‘sporting merit’ where there is a ‘public perception of fairness’.
This may result in Leagues determining their placings by points per game.
All fans of Premier League teams will no doubt place an aster-ix in their mind firmly beside Liverpool’s awarded 19/20 title win.
