A thought may be entering the heads of some Liverpool fans at the moment: ‘We could be Premier League champions now’.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have been near-perfect in the Premier League this season, winning 27 of their 29 matches.
Liverpool looked a sure thing to win the Premier League this season
They’re a massive 25 points clear at the top of the table and only need two more wins to be guaranteed their first league title in 30 years.
However, those two wins will feel a million miles away as circumstances regarding the coronavirus outbreak has put the season on hold until April 3 at the very earliest.
The obstacles that the world will face because of coronavirus will be very difficult so whether Liverpool become champions or not is not important in the grand scheme of things.
Nevertheless, Kopites will have a right to feel some disappointment as Monday could have been the night where three decades of hurt were finally going to end.

And what would have made it better is that they could have sealed the title when playing away at Merseyside rivals Everton on Monday.
Admittedly, it would have been a tough ask as Liverpool would have had to win at Goodison Park while also relying on Burnley to beat the Reds’ nearest title rivals, Manchester City, at the Etihad Stadium last weekend but it’s not to be for now.
Like the rest of us, the Liverpool players are keeping a low profile at home, although some of them have managed to keep themselves (and us) entertained.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain lifted the mood of fans when he and popstar girlfriend Perrie Edwards filmed themselves dancing up some stairs in his house.

Teammate James Milner responded by sharing a hilarious video of him rationing his tea bags and thus keeping up the image that he’s indeed ‘boring James Milner’.
There are even concerns among Liverpool fans that they won’t be given the title at all if coronavirus forces the 2019/20 season to become null and void.
It’s also been suggested that Liverpool could be handed the title anyway, such is their lead.
So despite Oxlade-Chamberlain and Milner’s funny antics, it’s certainly going to be a nervous wait for all those connected with Liverpool about what will happen to their title.
