This season’s edition of the Premier League had been filled with twists and turns right from the off, except in one specific position. Reigning European champions Liverpool took control of the league table quite early on the campaign, and have since lapped every other team at least once. Their dominance at the top has been so spectacular, that Manchester City in second place, are a whole 25 points behind them at this point.
The Reds have only lost a single game in the league all campaign, and have easily been the most dangerous looking side since the start of the season. They have outclassed some of the best teams in the country this campaign, in a run that saw them go more than a year unbeaten at home.
Despite all this, over the last month, things seem to have taken a nosedive for Liverpool, as they have been knocked out of the FA Cup and the UEFA Champions League in the space of under two weeks. While the defeats to Chelsea and Atletico Madrid would’ve been hard to digest, nothing in the world could’ve prepared them for what has come after that. With the Premier League now suspended and expected to restart on the 4th of April, Reds fans will be hoping for a positive resolution to the league issue.
Rival football fans around the world were quick to point out the sheer magnitude of the unfairness in what was going on, all of it while maintaining a commendable sense of humour as well.
Premier League table as it stands

COVID-19 the champions elect looks to end Liverpool’s hopes of winning the league for the 1st time since 30 years!

Can’t believe a virus from China is putting more pressure on Liverpool’s title challenge than any other club in the Premier League

Once they began, the jokes never stopped. Liverpool have been at the top of English football for the longest time now, and opposition fans took full advantage of their rather helpless situation.
Someone just asked me if I think it would be unfair if the Premier League was cancelled, and so Liverpool couldn’t win it despite being so close…
I answered with a question of my own: is it physically possible for someone to literally laugh themselves to death? 😂😂😂

Trying so hard to be mature and respectful in the the face of a serious situation but also think there’s value in keeping a sense of humor and having a very long laugh at Liverpool potentially being robbed of this title.

Liverpool will finally win the Premier League after 30 years.
Manchester City have the best chance to win the Champions League.
Leeds will finally get promoted after 17 years.
But all may not happen because of the virus. Indeed, God is a Manchester United fan.

Despite the joy being expressed by some of the Reds’ rival fans, the Liverpool faithful found today’s news extremely difficult to digest. This is how some dejected Liverpool fans reacted to the gutting news.
Getting robbed of a nailed on league title after waiting 30 years for one would be the most Liverpool thing I’ve ever seen. I swear we’re cursed man, this game ain’t fair
