Liverpool should be crowned EPL champions – Gundogan

Manchester City and Germany midfielder Ilkay Gundogan claim that Liverpool should be crowned the Premier League champions.

The league was called off due to the coronavirus pandemic, which has also halted all major leagues across Europe.

Liverpool boasts a 25-point lead over reigning champions City in England’s top-flight standings at the moment with nine games remaining.

They are now just six points away from glory, but it has been suggested that their achievements over the past eight months could be chalked off amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

“There are different opinions. For clubs who have had a very good season, it obviously wouldn’t be nice if it was cancelled now,” Gundogan said.

“On the other hand, for clubs who aren’t doing as well and are maybe in the relegation places, abandonment would obviously suit them,” he added.

The Premier League has been scheduled to return on April 30, but with the United Kingdom currently in a state of emergency, there is a chance football’s hiatus will continue through to the summer.

Some experts have called for the season to be voided, while others believe Liverpool have already earned the Premier League crown after establishing an unassailable advantage at the summit.

However, Aleksander Ceferin the president of European football’s governing body Uefa, said on Saturday the 2019-20 campaign could be lost if it cannot be restarted by the end of June.
