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.

Sadio Mane makes a donation to Senegal Coronavirus health fund
Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has made a donation of 30 million FCFA – around 45,000 euros (£41,000) – to the national committee fighting against coronavirus in his home country of Senegal.
The Reds’ player decided to make the donation “spontaneously when he saw the evolution of the situation” with the increase of Covid-19 cases in Senegal, his agent said.
Mane also shared a video on social media where he asked his compatriots to take coronavirus “extremely seriously”.
The total number of confirmed Covid-19 cases in Senegal has reached 27, but two of them have returned to health, according to the Ministry of Health.
