Liverpool and Klopp should get Premier League trophy presentation

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will be presented with the Premier League trophy once they secure the title.

The league's chief executive Richard Masters has promised the club will be given the trophy "if it at all possible" despite fans not being allowed into stadiums.

With Liverpool only two victories away from being crowned top flight champions for the first time in three decades, Premier League bosses want to recognise the achievement despite concerns over social distancing.

Asked about a trophy presentation, Masters responded: "If at all possible, yes.

"We would like to have a trophy presentation to give the players and staff the moment they have worked so hard for.

"We would try and do it unless it wasn't possible because of safety concerns."

Although there was no further talk on the possibility of the season ending during Monday's (18.05.20) meeting, Masters did discuss plans to move two matches - Manchester City vs. Arsenal and Aston Villa vs. Sheffield United - forward.

This could level up the number of games the 20 teams have played, which would make it easier to decide the season on a points per game basis if the remaining fixtures couldn't be completed.

He added: "I don't think it will work quite like that but it is a relatively normal occurrence at this stage of the season that there are a number of matches that have to be played.

"But I think it is a good idea to prioritise games to be played first, relatively early in the schedule."
