However, hopes of a return to Europe after their Europa League adventure two years ago would be over.

The UEFA executive committee have met today, and decided that leagues which are not completed amid the coronavirus pandemic should be decided on 'sporting merit', which is likely to mean a points per game basis.

Burnley's current position of 10th would remain, although they would miss out on playing the last nine games as they looked to close a four-point gap to sixth place.

Arsenal would climb above Spurs into eighth - both missing out on Europe altogether - with Sheffield United going into sixth, above Wolves, and a Europa League place.

The league would be otherwise unchanged.

Liverpool would obviously be champions, with Leicester, Chelsea and Manchester United in the Champions League places, with Manchester City's impending two-year UEFA ban, pending appeal.

Bournemouth, Aston Villa and Norwich would be the sides in the bottom three, facing relegation.
