Brighton chief reckons it'd be 'incredibly unjust' if Liverpool didn't lift Premier League

With all the talk of the football season potentially being cancelled over the last few days, the thoughts of many LFC fans has - quite understandably - moved to the Premier League title.

The Reds are, of course, a vast 25 points ahead of 2nd placed Man City, as things stands, but a number of the top division clubs have suggested that the season be declared void.

Of course, those suggesting that are either fighting against relegation, or completely out of the running for any trophies.

But the Brighton Chief Exec, Paul Barber, doesn't agree. He told the BBC: "We don’t want to go down this option because every league starts with an expectation of completing all the fixtures and we really want to be able to do that.

"Our intention must be to try and complete matches but we’ve got to put people’s health first.

"At the moment, it’s really hard to imagine putting on a football game in the Premier League in two or three weeks time, it’s hard to imagine that given the scenario that we are in.

"If we were to freeze the league, then for me it would be incredibly unjust for Liverpool not to be awarded the title because I think everybody in the game appreciates what a fantastic season they’ve had and what a wonderful team they are.

"But equally, it would be incredibly unjust for teams to be relegated when there is still games to play and the financial consequences of that are difficult, and it’s equally unjust for Leeds and West Brom to not be promoted because we know how hard it is to get out of the Championship, we know how hard it is for teams to even get to this stage of the season in the top two."
