With the coronavirus pandemic having brought a halt to the Premier League campaign, Liverpool have been left waiting to find out whether they will be given the chance to end their 30-year wait for a league title.
However, many of the 20 clubs in England's top flight face an anxious wait over their own positions, whether that be to do with European qualification or potential relegation to the Championship.
Of course, the current global crisis has caught everyone off guard, resulting in frequent meetings being held between the powers-that-be at their respective organisations. However, it raises the question of what would have happened in years gone by had the Premier League been ended after gameweek 29.
However, despite comfortably winning yet another top-flight crown, United lost four of their last eight league games, resulting in the gap being reduced from 16 points.
Ipswich Town, in their first year back in the Premier League, had held onto the final Champions League spot after gameweek 29, only to eventually finish in fifth position as a result of Liverpool making the most of their two games in hand and Leeds United dropping just three points from their final eight outings.
Chelsea also made a significant move during the closing two months, progressing from ninth to sixth to claim the final UEFA spot with 19 points coming from a possible 27.
That return saw the Blues edge out Sunderland, who dropped from fourth and one point off the Champions League places to end the campaign in seventh, picking up just nine points from their last eight contests.
