'I Feel Sorry For Liverpool'

A Premier League player has claimed that if Liverpool win the 2019/20 league title as expected, it will not be as special a feat as it would have been under normal circumstances.

Prior to the pause in football forced by the COVID-19 outbreak, the Reds were essentially running away with Premier League title, sitting 25 points clear of second-placed Manchester City.

While Liverpool are still expected to lift the title unchallenged once football resumes, Watford captain Troy Deeney has claimed he feels bad for Jurgen Klopp's side as this campaign will always be remembered as the season that was hit by a pandemic.  

"I believe that when it comes to the integrity of this season anyway, it's already gone," he told CNN.

"I feel sorry for Liverpool because no matter how it plays out, they deserve to win the league. They deserve to get the trophy.

"But no matter how it plays out, even if we play all the games, it's still going to be the year spoiled by the pandemic.

"It's not going to be that year that Liverpool won the league being the best team and, you know, it's 30 years they haven't won for.

"So I do feel sorry for Liverpool and their players and Jordan (Henderson), but in terms of integrity, there's no way you could say that this is a viable competition.

"It's like running a marathon, 20 odd miles, stopping for two months and then sprinting the last bit and going: 'Ah, that was a good time that.'"

The Premier league will resume on 17 June, with Manchester City hosting Arsenal that day.
