According to reports from The Daily Express, Liverpool have received the backing of the most unlikely of sources regarding the Reds’ current Premier League title credentials.

Liverpool’s bitter rivals Manchester United are reportedly set to support the Reds’ title claims when it comes to ensuring the completion of the current English top-flight season.

The Reds may be a gargantuan 25-points clear at the top of the PL table but await an agonisingly dragged out verdict from the authorities regarding the remainder of the season, with the decision based off the basis of the government’s advice.

Liverpool face the prospect of a nightmare reality that would see the club miss out on their first-ever Premier League title that is just two victories away from becoming a mathematical guarantee.

Both the FA and UEFA have publically showcased their intentions of ensuring the current campaign is finished before the next one begins.

However, Liverpool’s hopes of title glory have been handed a timely boost from the strangest possible source as United have become the latest club to publically promote the idea of the season continuing.

In a club statement regarding refunds on season tickets, United said: “The club fully supports the collective intent to complete the Premier League, FA Cup and the UEFA club competitions.”

Unprecedented times

Liverpool are in an unprecedented situation regarding the severity of the global pandemic that has brought the footballing world to a standstill.

The Reds are under no pressure to kick up a fuss about their season and have remained as professional as ever.

 

Manager Jurgen Klopp even echoed these thoughts during an interview with Liverpool’s official club website.

“We said it now often enough, and I think everybody knows, football is not the most important thing in the world. One hundred percent not,” he said.

“In this moment it’s clear what is. But the only way to get football back as soon as possible, if that’s what the people want, the more disciplined we are now the earlier we will get, piece by piece by piece, our life back. That’s how it is.

“There is no other solution in the moment, nobody has another solution. We have to be disciplined by ourselves, we have to keep the distance to other people.

“We can still do some things, not a lot, but we have to just calm down a little bit with things. Yes, outside the economy has to carry on, that will start again.

“But the lower the number will be when we go out again, the number of people infected, that’s what I understand, the better it is.

“It will not be like nobody anymore after the next few weeks but the curve will flatten, that’s the most important thing.”
