Liverpool title odds: Can ‘Reds win league without playing another fixture’ this season?



With the ongoing coronavirus crisis, the future of countless sporting events remains up in the air. And the English Premier League is no different.

It’s a particularly worrying time for all associated with Liverpool. The club were well on their way to lifting their first ever Premier League title.

But their success has been immediately halted by the worrying pandemic.

While a decision has been made to postpone Euro 2020 until 2021, there is yet to be a final conclusion to talks about the current European league campaigns.

The Reds sit 25 points ahead of second-placed Manchester City, having played one game more than Pep Guardiola’s side.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have won 27 of their 29 league games this term, drawing once and losing once. But all their efforts may count for nothing if the season is declared null and void.

That is one potential option for the Premier League to take. Another is to award the Reds with the title.

The more reasonable option, however, may involve delaying the season and finishing it when conditions are once again playable. It will most certainly cause a delay to the beginning of the next campaign, but Liverpool supporters will be satisfied if it means they celebrate winning the league title this time out.

Klopp’s men are currently 23/5 to lift the trophy without another fixture being played this season.

And they are available at 1/50 to win the 2019/20 Premier League campaign.

Bookmakers have, however, refused to rule City out. The Manchester outfit are available at 34/1 to somehow win the title this season.

All football around Europe has been suspended until at least April, which could mean the campaigns stretch into the late summer.

And while Klopp’s men should still be able to wrap up the title, it remains uncertain just when they can achieve the feat.

The Reds had been suffering from issues on the pitch prior to the major worldwide crisis. The Merseyside outfit had won just two of their last six games in all competitions.

League wins were secured against West Ham and Bournemouth, but the club lost their first game of the season in a shock 3-0 defeat at Watford. And exits in the FA Cup and Champions League at the hands of Chelsea and Atletico Madrid respectively followed.

But those matters have since become insignificant due to the pandemic.

Other clubs at the top of the table vying for Champions League spots next season will also be anxious as to how the situation will be resolved.

Equally, there are huge complications for those at the bottom. Many clubs remain in danger of relegation, yet could potentially survive if the campaign is declared null and void.
