Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris believes it would be "cruel" if Liverpool were not crowned Premier League champions due to the coronavirus crisis. Jurgen Klopp's Reds were 25 points clear at the top of the table just before the 2019-20 campaign came to a halt in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is not guaranteed the season will continue, but recent reports suggest it could resume in June, however, Spurs goalkeeper Lloris is hoping the season comes to an end. "We are in a situation where everyone wants to finish and have the decision on the field," he told L'Equipe. "It would be terrible if everything ended like that nine [matches] before the end of the Premier League. "It would also be cruel for Liverpool with the lead they have, they are almost champions. As with everyone, there would be a taste of unfinished business. In addition, we are entering the most exciting period, the most beautiful moment of the season."

And, Lloris said: "It will be weird wherever it happens. Football is not a closed-door sport.

"Without the spectators, it is not the same. This is not how I see football. We are here to gather, share our emotions. "We all want full stadiums with atmosphere, fans, colour, and songs, but here we must take the context into consideration."
