UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has reassured Liverpool that they will be crowned Premier League champions "one way or another".
Liverpool currently sit 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League table, but their hopes of claiming a first title since 1990 have been left in limbo by the coronavirus-enforced indefinite shutdown of football.
The prospect of the 2019-20 season being declared null and void has not yet been ruled out, but Ceferin revealed that he "cannot imagine a scenario" where Liverpool miss out on being crowned champions.
"I can't see a way Liverpool could be left without a title," Ceferin told Slovenian publication EkipaSN.
"If the Premier League resumes play, Liverpool will almost certainly win the title. Theoretically it's not all over, but practically Liverpool are on the verge of it. If by any chance the play will not resume, we still have to find a way to declare final results, to declare champions.
"And again I cannot see, I cannot imagine a scenario, in which the champions would not be Liverpool. I understand the fans will be disappointed if it happens in an empty stadium or even in the league offices, but I believe they will get the title one way or another.
"We will be ready for such scenarios, but we are not working on the details of them right now. Currently we are completely focused on bringing the competitions to the end on the fields of play."
Liverpool need only six more points to secure the title.
