Following recent events, the Premier League has made a decision to suspend all upcoming games until earliest April 3 (via BBC Sport). Liverpool FC have also announced that the team will not be completing training at Melwood as usual and must self-train at home.
According to James Pearce, all training sessions in place at Melwood have been suspended and players must train at home following programmes instead.
As a result of the current situation, Liverpool will miss their clash against Everton at Goodison Park on Monday, but their next game could still be Manchester City on April 4. If the league postponements stick to the quoted time frame, the Reds could find themselves as Premier League champions at the Etihad next month.
Liverpool fans are trying to making light of the situation, with many joking about the players stuck at home trying to train as the normally would. One fan has asked Pearce to send them a copy of the programme as they have ‘nothing else to do without footy’.
James can you tweet out a photo of the training regimens they will follow? Trying to get in shape have nothing else to do without footy

I wonder if players will do what the rest of us are when asked to work from home. Binge netflix shows, surf internet and go through a familysize bag of wotsits
