Tottenham captain Lloris insists 'cruel' for Liverpool not to win title

Tottenham Hotspur captain Hugo Lloris says it would be 'cruel' for Liverpool to be denied the Premier League title.

The Reds are 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League table, with matches currently suspended due to coronavirus.

"We are in a situation where everyone wants to finish and have the verdict of the field," Lloris told L'Equipe.

"It would be terrible if everything ended like that nine days before the end of the Premier League. It would also be cruel for Liverpool with the lead they have... They are almost champions.

"As with everyone, there would be a taste of unfinished business. In addition, we are entering the most exciting period, the most beautiful moment of the season. Nobody wants it to end like this."
