After an agonising 30-year wait to lift the league title in England's top flight, Liverpool will finally be given the opportunity to end their wait when the season returns. The havoc caused by coronavirus postponed the realisation of Liverpool's dream of ending their league title drought. However, Liverpool fans can heave a sigh of relief as the Premier League is reportedly set to return in June. Liverpool are 25 points clear in the top of the table and need just to wins to seal the title and start drawing up plans for a Liverpool Premier League parade. It is reported that FA has promised the Reds that they will be granted permission to lift the Premier League title, albeit behind closed doors.

Jurgen Klopp's side need just two wins to clinch their first Premier League title in what was on course to be a historic campaign. However, Reds fans will not be able to witness their side lift the Premier League title in the stadium as the games are scheduled to be played behind closed doors. Nevertheless, Premier League chief executive Richard Masters has reportedly promised the club that they will be handed the Premier League title in the right manner.
Richard Masters, in an interview with The Sun, stated: "If at all possible, yes, there will be a ceremony and they will pass the trophy round. We would like to have a trophy presentation to give the players and staff the moment they have worked so hard for. So we would try and do it unless it wasn’t possible because of safety concerns. From a planning perspective, we are focused on finishing the 2019-20 season, but we also have to plan for all eventualities."
The Premier League return is reportedly scheduled on June 12 with clubs set to return to training this week. Premier League officials are considering using fake crowd noise inside the stadiums to help the viewers get a similar experience as that of a crowded stadium. Germany's Bundesliga resumed this past weekend without any hitches. All the games were played without the presence of the fans with substitutes on the bench also maintaining social distancing as per the government's guidelines.
