The league will reboot with the Reds 25 points clear on top and potentially one win away from verifying their triumph.

If Manchester City lose their video game in hand – versus Toolbox on Wednesday – Jurgen Klopp’s side will seal the title with triumph in the Merseyside derby at Everton on Sunday.

The race for a top-four area is less of a rule.

Liverpool, Leicester, Chelsea and Manchester United are currently occupying the credentials places, but the likes of Wolves, Sheffield United, Tottenham and Arsenal will all begin again with a location in Europe’s leading competitors as their aim.

Down at the bottom, 6 clubs are apparently battling it out to avoid the drop.
