EPL: Van Dijk fears Liverpool winning title amid coronavirus outbreak
Liverpool centre back, Virgil van Dijk, has said he would be “gutted” if the coronavirus outbreak stops their fans watching the team win the league.
Premier League fixtures have been suspended until April 4 at least.
Liverpool are almost certain to win the title for the first time in 30 years.
The Reds sit 25 points clear of Manchester City in second place and need only two wins to be confirmed champions.
Van Dijk told Dutch newspapers: “If we won it in an empty stadium and the fans weren’t there, I’d be gutted for them.
“Obviously, if there are no fans at Anfield, then it will be a bit of a blow – no one wants to play games without the fans.”
