UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin says there is "no way" Liverpool FC will not be crowned Premier League champions.

Ceferin insists that Jurgen Klopp's Reds would secure the Premier League title if 2019-20 campaign resumes, but, if the COVID-19 pandemic results in the remaining matches being cancelled, then the current season would have to be nulled and voided.

The Merseyside club lead the table with 25 points and only need two wins to wrap up their first league title in 30 years. "I see no way for Liverpool to stay untitled. If the championship resumes, they will almost certainly win it - theoretically, it has not yet reached the guaranteed level, but it is practically close," Ceferin told Slovenian sports daily Ekipa. "However, if it could not be played, it would also be necessary to announce the results in some way and find some key on how the champions should be determined. And, of course, again I do not see a scenario in which that would not be Liverpool. "I understand that fans will be disappointed if it happens in an empty stadium or even at the green table, but I believe they will win the title one way or another." He added: "I'm an optimist. I am optimistic that we will see the conclusion of the Spanish championship, I am optimistic that we will see the conclusion of the Italian one, and I am optimistic in general. "Of course, I cannot guarantee anything, I cannot promise anything. It will all depend on the situation in the individual countries, it will all depend on whether the circumstances are good enough for you to avoid endangering anyone by playing football."
