Man City midfielder Gundogan admits 'fair' for Liverpool to win title

Ilkay Gundogan says it would be 'fair' for Liverpool to be crowned Premier League champions without finishing the season.

Liverpool are 25 points clear of second-placed City, but the league was suspended on March 13 because of the coronavirus pandemic with the Reds just two wins away from clinching the title.

Asked by ZDF about the prospect of Liverpool being awarded the title, Gundogan said: "For me, that would be okay, yes. You have to be fair as a sportsperson.

"There are different opinions. For clubs who have had a very good season, it obviously wouldn't be nice if it was cancelled now.

"On the other hand, for clubs who aren't doing as well and are maybe in the relegation places, an abandonment would obviously suit them."
