EPL: Paul Merson kicks against awarding Liverpool league title


Former Arsenal star Paul Merson is against the idea of ​​the Premier League handing the title over to Liverpool before the end of this season.

English football is currently on a forced hiatus until April 4 at least, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

After 29 matches in the top flight, Liverpool is 25 points ahead of Manchester City at the top of the table.

Jurgen Klopp's men only need two more wins to be confirmed champions.

With much uncertainty surrounding the resumption of the Premier League, there have been calls for the Reds to receive the trophy.

But Merson, using the snooker analogy, explained why that won't work.

He told Sky Sports: "It's okay to say that Liverpool has a 25-point lead, but if I played pool with my partner tomorrow, and I need 25 pool to win, and he said, 'The game is over, there's no point in playing anymore! & # 39; – for the next week or two, I'd say: & # 39; But I could have won that! ”
