While uncertainty reigns over the future of the 2019/20 Premier League season, UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has now handed Liverpool a major boost in their pursuit of a first league title in 30 years.
The Reds are currently 25 points clear of nearest rivals Manchester City in the EPL standings, but their pursuit of a first league title in 30 years was dealt a major blow following the coronavirus-enforced suspension of all football in England.
That decision was unprecedented in the history of the competition and raised concerns, particularly among Liverpool fans, that the league might be declared "null and void" with no champion crowned.
However, there now appears to be light at the end of the tunnel after Ceferin shared his view that Jurgen Klopp's side would lift the title this season, regardless of how the campaign was ultimately concluded.

"I can't see a way Liverpool could be left without a title," the 52-year-old reportedly told Slovenian publication EkipaSN, as reported by the Evening Standard.
"If the Premier League resumes play, Liverpool will almost certainly win the title. Theoretically, it's not all over, but practically Liverpool are on the verge of it.
"If by any chance the play will not resume, we still have to find a way to declare final results, to declare champions. And again I cannot see, I cannot imagine a scenario in which the champions would not be Liverpool.
"I understand the fans will be disappointed if it happens in an empty stadium or even in the league offices, but I believe they will get the title one way or another."
