Massive EPL Decision Good News For Liverpool's Title Bid

The Premier League has made a massive announcement that is good news for Liverpool's title bid.

Read: 'Liverpool Shouldn't Be Given Title'

Amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis in England, the Premier League – along with all professional football bodies – has decided to extend the current break on football until 30 April, even if it means the season goes beyond 30 June.

The leagues will not be cancelled or called null and void at this stage, with the intention being to make sure the 2019/20 season is completed, which is obviously good news for Jurgen Klopp's side, who need six more points to secure their first title in 30 years.

Here is the official statement from the Premier League in full:

"We are united in our commitment to finding ways of resuming the 2019/20 football season and ensuring all domestic and European club league and cup matches are played as soon as it is safe and possible to do so. 

"We have collectively supported UEFA in postponing Euro 2020 to create space in the calendar to ensure domestic and European club league and cup matches have an increased opportunity to be played and, in doing so, maintain the integrity of each competition. 

"The FA's Rules and Regulations state that 'the season shall terminate not later than the 1 June' and 'each competition shall, within the limit laid down by The FA, determine the length of its own playing season'.

"However, The FA's Board has agreed for this limit to be extended indefinitely for the 2019/20 season in relation to Professional Football.

"Additionally, we have collectively agreed that the professional game in England will be further postponed until no earlier than 30 April. 

"The progress of COVID-19 remains unclear and we can reassure everyone the health and welfare of players, staff and supporters are our priority. We will continue to follow Government advice and work collaboratively to keep the situation under review and explore all options available to find ways of resuming the season when the conditions allow.

"We would all like to re-emphasise that our thoughts are with everyone affected by COVID-19."
