Liverpool fans reckon their team ‘can even beat Coronavirus’ as the deadly flu threatens to cause havoc with sporting fixtures. Several major events have already been called off due to the virus, including the Chinese F1 Grand Prix, the Six Nations rugby clash between Ireland and Italy and the World Indoor Athletics Championships.
It’s feared the spread of Coronavirus could lead to more chaos with the sporting calendar.
And with Liverpool on track to end their long wait for a league title win, rival fans have begun winding them up on social media.
Several supporters have suggested Premier League fixtures might need to be cancelled to avoid the virus spreading.
Even Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan got in on the action, writing on Twitter: “Jeez.. imagine if Premier League fixtures get wiped out by coronavirus before Liverpool’s won it.”

While a third tweeted: “Liverpool 2 Corona virus 1. Mane 95mins.” Another posted: “Big Virgil will clear it out.”
