Many Everton fans have been fuming at comments made by the Premier League chief executive Richard Masters after he claimed in a video call with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) select committee (via The Gwladys Street) that Liverpool will still be champions even if the 2019/20 season is curtailed.
Should Everton fans congratulate Liverpool on their Premier League title win?
However, the CEO of the top flight did admit that there would have to be an agreement on some sort of model with regards to relegating teams and qualification for Europe.
This comes as Leicester were put on increased lock down restrictions by Health Secretary Matt Hancock after a spike of the global pandemic, but Leicester City’s upcoming game against Crystal Palace will still go ahead as it stands.
However, there is a genuine fear that if this was to happen in other areas of the country, especially with teams from England’s highest division, then the campaign may have to end after all after a relatively promising Project Restart.
Nevertheless, Jurgen Klopp’s side will still be given the title if the worst case scenario happens, despite no further clarity on the relegation or European spots, and it is safe to say that these EFC supporters were fuming about it:
