Liverpool and England captain Jordan Henderson has said lifting the trophy without fans is no fun at all, he further said playing at Anfield and lifting the Premier League trophy without any fans will be “pretty strange”. Liverpool is currently topping the league and hopes to lift the 2019/20 English Premier League trophy.
The Reds are left with just six points which can come from two wins from the last nine games for them to lift the England top-flight title since 1990. The league is hopeful of a June restart having been suspended since 13 March because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Liverpool Captain Henderson said Liverpool fans “make a huge difference and we all know that”. in his opinion lifting the Trophy without fans is no fun. The said: “Of course it would feel different because if you win any trophy and receive it without any fans there, it would be pretty strange.”
“It is still not over. We still have work to do and we still need to perform at a high level right the way until the season finishes because we want to finish as strongly as we can to make sure it is a full season.”
“After that, whether we win it or whatever, then [receiving] the trophy and the fans not being there… you just have to deal with it when it comes. Hopefully, it does happen. We are still in a very good position. “It will mean we have won the Premier League and we will all be very happy but then we can look to the future – and whenever fans are allowed back into the stadium, I am sure we will have some sort of celebration together.”
In the latest round of Premier League testing, two individuals have tested positive for the coronavirus including Bournemouth goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale taking the total number of cases to eight from 1,744 tests carried out. Henderson added: “My opinion is that as soon as everyone is comfortable and as soon as it is safe to do so, we are guided by the experts and doctors on what they deem safe to do.”
Actually lifting the trophy without fans is no fun but with the current situation at hand, playing behind closed doors is the option left if the will be re-opened.
