Former Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar says it will be "extremely harsh" if Liverpool do not become Premier League champions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Jurgen Klopp's Reds were leading the Premier League table by 25 points before the coronavirus crisis brought football to a standstill in March. The Merseyside club need two more victories from the remaining nine matches to seal their first major trophy in 30 years, however, it is now guaranteed if the season will continue or voided. But Van der Sar expects Liverpool win the title if the 2019-20 campaign doesn't resume. "In my view, with the type of football they played and the points they are ahead, it would be extremely harsh," the United legend told CNN Sport. "The Premier League is a well-run league and of course there are big interests on the financial side, the commercial sides. "But I'm sure they will make a wise decision if they keep on playing or if the league stops, what the results will be depending on for Champions League places, relegation or awarding a title to Liverpool. "If the league doesn't resume, I presume everybody will be okay if Liverpool wins the title."
