Last month, it was starting to look as though Liverpool could be denied the Premier League title they so richly deserve.
Jurgen Klopp’s side established a 25 point lead at the top of the table before the coronavirus pandemic halted the season.
As the crisis in the UK worsened, the resumption of football appeared in serious doubt.
But the whole club will be breathing a huge sigh of relief this week when Aston Villa and Sheffield United kick off ‘Project Restart’ on Wednesday.
They may end up lifting the Premier League trophy in front of an empty stadium but they will be undisputed champions.
In truth, the pandemic has been more of a threat to Liverpool winning the league than any Premier League rival.
But a global pandemic isn’t the only scare Liverpool have had this season that has threatened their title win.
At the start of March, we revealed how NASA claim asteroid could 'end human civilisation' in April.
Fortunately, the asteroid missed us.
Then came the coronavirus pandemic, which Liverpool look to have also survived.
But now, with the Reds on the brink of glory, there’s another danger.
A conspiracy theory is claiming the world will now end on Sunday - the day Liverpool could clinch the title against Everton.
If Arsenal beat Manchester City on Wednesday, Liverpool would win their first ever Premier League title at Goodison Park on Sunday evening.
The Mayan calendar was used to predict the end of the world in December 2012 - which obviously didn’t happen.
But there was a problem with their maths.
We’ll let scientist Paolo Tagaloguin explain: “Following the Julian Calendar, we are technically in 2012.
“The number of days lost in a year due to the shift into Gregorian Calendar is 11 days.
"For 268 years using the Gregorian Calendar (1752-2020) times 11 days = 2,948 days. 2,948 days / 365 days (per year) = 8 years”.
So that means June 21 (Sunday) is actually December 21 - the day the world was supposed to end.
But if you’re worried, NASA unsurprisingly played down fears.
NASA said: “The story started with claims that Nibiru, a supposed planet discovered by the Sumerians, is headed toward Earth.
"This catastrophe was initially predicted for May 2003, but when nothing happened the doomsday date was moved forward to December 2012 and linked to the end of one of the cycles in the ancient Mayan calendar at the winter solstice in 2012 - hence the predicted doomsday date of December 21, 2012.”
The space agency previously explained: "For any claims of disaster or dramatic changes in 2012, where is the science? Where is the evidence?
“There is none, and for all the fictional assertions, whether they are made in books, movies, documentaries or over the Internet, we cannot change that simple fact.
“There is no credible evidence for any of the assertions made in support of unusual events taking place in December 2012.”
