But one thing hasn’t altered during three months in lockdown – the Premier League table.

The impact of the coronavirus has been both immeasurable and immense – and promises to redefine how the game is run and viewed in the future.

Liverpool will celebrate Premier League success soon after coronavirus forced lengthy wait, but even with huge gap back to Manchester City, the season will be remembered for Covid-19

Liverpool are a staggering 25 points ahead of their nearest challengers, defending champions Manchester City, following a blistering campaign that has left those chasing them staring at a team that disappeared into the distance a long time ago.

Much has changed in the footballing world since Covid-19 brought our national sport to shuddering halt in March.

Just like back in the spring, it shows that one team sits head and shoulders above the rest, looking down on them all from one of the loftiest perches in history.

This would have been a remarkable reflection of how peerless and dominant Klopp’s side have been.

Had the crisis not arrived when it did, the Reds would have been crowned champions in March for the first time in 30 years. March, for goodness sake.

In truth, the title race was done and dusted in December. City boss Pep Guardiola even admitted so as it dawned on him that Jurgen Klopp’s men would not be stopped.

What made the charge even more impressive was that it came on the back of the heartbreak of missing out on the title the previous season to City, by just one point.

It was an incredible effort from City, just like it has been an incredible effort from the Reds this time round to bounce back, lift themselves and go again, starting with the club’s sixth European Cup success in Madrid 12 months ago.

Arguably the greatest season in history saw the Reds lose just once, but still finish second due to the fact City won their remaining 14 games to pip them to the post.

The champagne has been left on ice, but now the season is poised to resume it could be just a matter of days before the corks are popped at Anfield.

It feels ironic that a club that has gone three decades without being champions has been made to wait a little while longer before returning to the pinnacle of English football.

It feels even more ironic that not if, but when it does happen, there will be no supporters there to witness the achievement due to the fact all 92 remaining Premier League games will take place behind closed doors.
