Will coronavirus tarnish Liverpool’s title celebrations?

Wayne Farry

There’s plenty to talk about this week

On this week’s Football Trending, the panel discuss the potential effects that the coronavirus pandemic could have on the footballing world, focusing on the highly likely event of Liverpool winning the Premier League in an empty stadium.

Should fans who have bought tickets to games be fully reimbursed in the event of them being played behind closed doors, or is access to an online stream sufficient compensation? Is playing games behind closed doors even helpful in the current circumstances, given fans’ tendency to congregate in town squares, as seen outside the Parc des Princes on Wednesday night.

They also discuss Bruno Fernandes’ instant impact for Manchester United, after the Portuguese racked up two goals and three assists in his first five league games for the club. Is he their best signing since Robin van Persie?

And after an eventful week in the Champions League, PSG’s controversial celebrations are put under the spotlight as the panel discuss whether or not their mocking of Erling Braut Håland’s celebration was in poor taste. Spoiler: it was.
