All elite English football will be suspended until at least 30 April because of the continued threat of coronavirus.
All of the Premier League games, EFL, Women’s Super League and Women’s Championship, and all fixtures in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, are currently postponed.
The Football Association has also agreed that the current season can be “extended indefinitely” beyond the original end date of 1 June. So Liverpool will still have to play at least 2 more games to win the Premier League.

The total number of Coronavirus cases top 220,000 globally.
