Currently Liverpool are on their way to win the Premier League title, with 25 points separating them from the 2nd placed Manchester City. This was the first time the league has been suspended for 81 years since the outbreak of World War II. But how did the the league table looked back then?

On Friday, September 1, Germany invaded Poland during the 48th season of the Football League and it was abandoned after just three matches played. And here are the competition results before the outbreak of the war.
