A number of Manchester City fans have called for the Premier League season to be brought to an end following confirmation of four more positive coronavirus tests on Wednesday.
As noted by Sky Sports, the third round of testing at all 20 top-flight clubs yielded four new cases of COVID-19 from three different clubs out of 1,008 tests conducted, following eight cases from 1,744 tests in the previous two rounds of testing since 17 May. The latest results were also shared on Twitter by @City_Xtra.

The current league table sees Manchester City in second place, albeit with 25 points to make up on runaway leaders Liverpool, whom they pipped to the title last year to win back-to-back league crowns.
Should the Premier League season resume next month?
These Cityzens on Twitter voiced their opposition to resuming the league after four more people at top-flight clubs tested positive for COVID-19, with one supporter even willing for the Reds to be awarded the title if it means ending the season:
Cancel the season, it’s a shame but it HAS to be done.

That’s so reassuring. Null & void the season or award it to Liverpool. Player’s lives are on the line

The only way these leagues will stop is if a player or a manager dies from this.
