It was announced earlier this week that the Premier League season had been put on a temporary shutdown until April 4 when a further decision will be made (BBC).

However, the report does not rule out further suspensions or a cancellation after that point, as the coronavirus continues to sweep across Europe.

Unfortunately, this leaves the current Premier League table up in the air, particularly for Liverpool who are just a couple of wins away from lifting their first title in 30 years.

Sky Sports have now listed three possible scenarios if the season is cancelled:

  1. The title is handed to Liverpool and no teams are relegated from the Premier League. However, the top two current Championship teams, West Brom and Leeds, and promoted to a 22-team 2020/21 season.
  2. The who table and season is declared null and void, meaning that Liverpool do not lift the title and no one is promoted or relegated.
  3. The current table is treated as the final table, despite being just 28/29 matchdays in.
