The UK Government has revealed having talks with the Premier League over the restart of the season as soon as possible. 

Professional football in England has been stopped since March amid the coronavirus outbreak. 

Since then, there have been many talks on how the season could be finished. At some point, there were reports that all results could be nullified. However, this option is reportedly off the table, as officials intend to finish the campaign. 

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Secretary Oliver Dowden says they are willing to support the football community. 

“I personally have been in talks with the Premier League with a view to getting football up and running as soon as possible in order to support the whole football community.” Dowden told the House of Commons. 

Liverpool are leading in the PL table with a 25-point-advantage over Manchester City. Merseyside club needs two wins to secure their first top flight title in 30 years.
