When football does resume next month, Liverpool will almost certainly win their first Premier League crown.

Manchester City will almost certainly join them in the top four, while as many as seven clubs are battling for the other two places in the top four.

At the other end of the table, Norwich will resume the league at the bottom and six points from safety.

Aston Villa and Bournemouth are also in the relegation zone and have work to do if they aren't to be relegated to the Championship.

We can't wait for football to be back on our TV screens.
