Liverpool Chairman, Tom Werner has insisted on finishing the entire Premier League 2019-20 season this year. Notably, due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, the Premier League has been put on hold since the last couple of months. However, a ray of hope has emerged recently as Premier League clubs returned to training from May 18.
As of now, Liverpool are the obvious champions of the Premier League 2019-20 and are only two wins away from the nine games they have in hand to win the Premier League. Their season was none short of exponential as they were en route to finishing the season as invincibles. However, Crystal Palace broke the jinx but no other club can separate Liverpool from the title this season.
Premier League is expected to return to action from June 12 and now Liverpool’s Chairman, Tom Werner has also expressed his desire of completing the entire season.
Liverpool Chairman Tom Werner Expresses Intent To Finish The Entire Premier League Season
Werner wants to see the season completed but accepts safety – and the discovery of a vaccine – is a key priority as the pandemic continues.
“The more important thing is if we can figure out a way to get these matches played because I think it would be good for the country,” he said.
“The most important thing is safety. I do think the protocols that the Premier League are working on as somebody said its probably safer to play behind closed doors than to go to a supermarket,” the Liverpool chairman added.
Liverpool Are 25 Points Clear At The Top Of The Premier League Table
Liverpool have had an exceptional season so far. Out of the 29 games played this season, the Reds have gone on to win 27 of those games and have 82 points on the table. The record is simply breathtaking and is one of the finest runs in the history of Premier League. Manchester City are on the second spot with 57 points in 28 games.
Leicester City have also had a wonderful run under Brendon Rodgers this season and are currently on the third spot with 53 points in 29 games so far. Frank Lampard’s Chelsea sit on the fourth spot in the Premier League table with 48 points in 29 games.
