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 naturally raises the question of what would have happened in years gone by had the Premier League been ended after gameweek 29.
Having agonisingly missed out to Manchester City during the previous campaign, Manchester United were motivated to regain the top-flight crown - a target which was ultimately achieved with minimal fuss in 2012-13.
Sir Alex Ferguson, in his final year at Old Trafford, guided United to yet another title by an 11-point margin, one fewer than the advantage which they held after gameweek 29.
City did just enough to hold off Chelsea, who rallied over the closing 10 games to finish two and three points respectively ahead of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, who had previously possessed a seven-point cushion in the race for a Champions League spot.
Everton made full use of their game in hand after gameweek 29 to edge out Liverpool for sixth position, although the Toffees missed out on the Europa League as a result of Swansea City and Wigan Athletic winning the domestic cup competitions.
Despite lifting the FA Cup with a dramatic win over Man City, Wigan were relegated to the Championship having failed to move out of the dropzone over the final two months of the season.
After gameweek 29, West Bromwich Albion had been just five points adrift of fifth position and in contention for a rare appearance in Europe.
However, while the Baggies retained eighth position, they recorded just six points from their remaining nine fixtures, eventually finishing 23 points off qualification for continental football.
