All current EPL clubs have officially announced that they are ready to give the title of champion of England for 2019-2020 to Liverpool. Manchester City is 25 points behind the possible future champion; however, they have a game in reserve, but this won’t play any role if the championship is finished ahead of schedule due to coronavirus. Unfortunately, there are no rules in the League that could clarify the situation about the early end of the championship.
However, not all clubs agree with such soccer results. Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham insist that the current soccer results should be completely nullified. A famous journalist wrote it on Twitter, but he quickly deleted his post. Let’s see what decision will be made at a future meeting, perhaps the national leagues will finish their games with peace and determine the winning team without any scandals.
English premier league results and future of the championships
On Tuesday, March 17, there will be a special meeting at the UEFA, and we may hear the announcement that all European games will be postponed, as well as about the suspension of the League and even the complete stop of football games due to the coronavirus pandemic. UEFA faces serious questions and challenges that are urgent. The European Association of Clubs and the representatives of the FIFPro players union must also decide what to do with the english premier league results and who will be the champion this year or annul all past games.
Results of the English Premier League:
- EPL, Championship, League 1 and League 2 are temporarily paused (theoretically until April 4)
- Perhaps, Liverpool will become the champion (for the first time in 30 years)
- Two clubs insist on canceling the results of the championship
The future of English football, and the entire League is very vague at the moment, since the fate of all national leagues depends on the meeting that will be held on Tuesday. If the dates are postponed, this will give domestic championships time to finish their seasons quietly, but if everyone cancels, the time will be insufficient and the team representing the country in the European competition will need to be selected quickly.
Teams should be selected before the Champions League and LE (2020-2021). At the moment, all the championships in the top 5 are suspended for at least two weeks, or the terms of the suspension have not been officially announced. The only football competition that has not been suspended because of the virus is the Russian Premier League.
