Manchester City fans have suggested that Liverpool be crowned Premier League champions.
Coronavirus fears have led to all professional football in England be postponed until at least April 3, but experts suggest that the rest of the season could go unplayed.
If that is the case, Liverpool will be unable to win the two further fixtures they need to mathematically stop City from being able to win the title.
West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady believes that all of this season’s record should be scrapped, prompting a noble response from supporters of Pep Guardiola’s Light Blues.
One fan said: “Well said. I'm also an #MCFC supporter. The title should go to Liverpool. Best team by far this season, well deserved. Voiding would be ridiculous.
“If the season must end early, let's give #LFC the trophy now. Exceptional times shouldn't eclipse an exceptional team.”
Another added: “Unpopular Opinion: Liverpool should get there title even if the league is cancelled.”
A third said: “Liverpool should be awarded the title of it were to be halted. They won it in November and they're top of the league by miles. They deserve it.”
Brady had written in her column for The Sun : "Suspension or cancellation of the league was always a certainty.
"There is no dodging the possibility that all levels in the EFL as well as the Premier League will have to be cancelled and this season declared null and void because if the players can’t play the games can’t go ahead.
"The PL hopes that an interlude of three weeks from today will enable it to restart but that may well be dreamland.
"The issue is that medical advice is that for every day a player is in isolation he needs a day to recover his fitness.
“This on top of the issue that Covid-19 is so highly contagious the thought that everyone will be in and out of isolation and fit to play on April 4 seems so unlikely.
"As games in both the PL and in the EFL are affected, the only fair and reasonable thing to do is declare the whole season null and void. Who knows who would have gone down or come up if the games have not actually been played in full?
"A huge blow to Liverpool who might be robbed of their first title in 30 years."
