According to the Liverpool Echo UEFA president Aleksandr Ceferin “can’t see a way” where Liverpool are not crowned Premier League champions this season.

The Reds are a record 25 points clear at the summit and need only six more points from their remaining nine games to clinch the title for the first time since 1990.

A number of Premier League clubs hadexpressed a desire to declare the Premier League Season null and void while top players such as Harry Kane and Kevin de Bruyne have admitted they would not be averse to the season being scrapped.

Liverpool though have a major ally in UEFA president Ceferin and he is convinced Liverpool will win the title even if the remaining games do not take place, with the governing body clearly having no appetite for the season to be expunged.

“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.”

UEFA have alreadypostponed internationals and European club competition, and have reminded national associations that Champions League and Europa League qualification could be affected by no resolution being found.

But Ceferin, speaking in his homeland to Slovenian daily sports paper EkipaSN, admitted Liverpool fans may not be present for the final weeks of the season.
