Due to the unforseen coronavirus pandemic which has led to the postponement of the English Premier League April 30, the Brighton & Hove Albion chief executive Paul Barber as said that it will be totally unfair to deny the leading team on the table; Liverpool s the champion for the season in case the league is cancelled.
The English top flight has been suspended until April 30 because of the coronavirus pandemic has this have been making people to ask if the league will continue or not.
Barber said that ending the league as it stands would be unfair for teams at the top and bottom, but he is hopeful the season can be completed:
"Every league starts with an expectation of completing all 38 fixtures, as it is in the Premier League, and we want to be able to do that.
"Our intention must be to play the fixtures, but it's really hard to imagine putting on a football game in the Premier League in two or three weeks' time given the scenario we are in.
"If we were to freeze the league it would be incredibly unjust for Liverpool to not be awarded the title, because everybody in the game appreciates what a fantastic season they have had. Equally it would be unjust for teams to be relegated with nine or 10 games to go in the Premier League."
However, a leading newspaper (Daily Telegraph) has reported that Liverpool "are still likely to be crowned Premier League champions" even if the 2019-20 season is cancelled.
The Brighton chief also said it was "difficult to think about" the Premier League resuming on April 4 because a number of teams now have players in self-isolation.
Arsenal have announced the full first-team squad is in self-isolation after manager Mikel Arteta tested positive for the coronavirus, while Chelsea forward Callum Hudson-Odoi has also been diagnosed with the virus.
Leicester City, Everton and Bournemouth have also confirmed they are taking precautionary measures and have players in self-isolation.
