The Premier League was officially postponed until 3 April 2020 following a number of players and coaches tested positive for the corona virus.

The Premier League holds a meeting to determine the fate of the competition. The fate of Liverpool, which is now comfortable at the top of the table, is at the forefront if the Premier League then decides to whiten the competition.
