The Premier League confirmed on Thursday that top flight football would be suspended until at least April due to the coronavirus pandemic.
In a joint statement released alongside the FA and EFL, the governing bodies said in the unprecedented circumstances the / 90 season would be “extended indefinitely” beyond the June 1 cut-off.
This was no doubt welcome news to Liverpool fans who should eventually watch their team be crowned Premier League champions.
Speaking in response to Thursday’s decision, former Arsenal pro Alan Smith, who agrees with the ruling, has warned that L iverpool “could lose every game” upon their return to action.
Smith said: “We could theoretically go into August, September maybe at a push, I don ‘ t know.
“So they may have had a chat amongst themselves as to when that line will be drawn, when they might have to look at bringing an end to the season.
“It’s impossible I think to do it in a fair way. Liverpool fans will obviously say ‘we’re going to win the title, you could give us the trophy now ‘but at the end of the day, mathematically they haven’t.
“Theoretically the wheels could come off, they could lose every game. Of course it’s not going to happen but we have to go along with the maths really.
“But I’m just hoping that won’t happen, that we will get a chance to see it through, and I think we will. “
