Lloris wants Premier League title settled on the pitch

PARIS (AFP) – Hugo Lloris believes that ending the English Premier League season without declaring Liverpool champions would be “cruel”, but the Tottenham captain wants the final table decided on the field.

The goalkeeper is following the English social isolation rules at home with his family in London, helping his two oldest daughters with their homework while trying to stay fit in case the season restarts.

“We’re in a situation where everyone wants to finish and get the verdict from the pitch,” Lloris told French sports daily L’Equipe. “It would be terrible if it all ended like that with nine or 10 games to go in the Premier League.”

“We’re coming into the most exciting, beautiful time of the season. Nobody wants it to end like this.”

Liverpool lead the Premier League table by 25 points.

“It would be cruel for Liverpool with the lead they have. They’re practically champions. There would be a taste of the unfinished business.”
