Liverpool fans can finally take a long breathe as the Premier League is resuming from June 17. There was a fear of league being abandoned which might have dented the Reds chances of winning the league after 30 years.
However, the FA has already announced the fixtures for the league resumption which indicates that Liverpool can end their 30 years of wait on June 21 in case Arsenal defeats Manchester City in the opening day of league resumption.
Second placed Manchester City is playing against Arsenal in the first day of resuming day and a win for Arsenal could help Liverpool shorten their wait for the league by few days. If this happens, then Liverpool will need just a win.
With Liverpool playing against Everton four days later, they can win the league on that day. Or else, if the Manchester City – Arsenal match doesn’t favor, they will have to wait till June June 24, when Liverpool themselves play West Ham.
Until February, everything was perfect for Liverpool. FA cup in hand, knock-out stage in Champions league and impressive lead in the premier league. When the March starts, Liverpool lost their treble hope after suffering FA Cup 5th round defeat to Chelsea. With less than two weeks of that, Liverpool suffered yet another setback as they were knocked out by Atletico Madrid from the Champions League. After that, the only ray of hope for the Reds was their 30-years long awaited Premier League title. A 3-1 defeat to Watford ended their hope to remain Invincibles.
Liverpool needed just two wins (six points ) to be crowned the Premier League champions after 30 years. However, all of sudden, the league has to be suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic which drove Liverpool fans around the world crazy. Nevertheless, with the announcement of resuming the league, Liverpool fans will have their party on now.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are 25 points clear at the top and now it is a matter of time that when Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson will get his hand on the trophy. The wait could be even less if Arsenal beats Manchester City in the first of the restart.
