It Would Be Strange To Lift Premier League Title Without Fans – Henderson

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson admitted it would be “pretty strange” to lift the Premier League trophy without fans in attendance.

Jurgen Klopp’s men are on track to win a first league title since 1990, holding a 25-point lead at the top with the season suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

With the Premier League reportedly aiming to restart behind closed doors as soon as next month, Henderson could be lifting a trophy with no fans watching on.

The midfielder said it would be unusual if that was the case, although warned his team still had work to do.

“Of course it would feel different because if you win any trophy and receive it without any fans there, it would be pretty strange,” Henderson told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“It is still not over. We still have work to do and we still need to perform at a high level right the way until the season finishes because we want to finish as strongly as we can to make sure it is a full season.

“After that, whether we win it or whatever, then [receiving] the trophy and the fans not being there … you just have to deal with it when it comes. Hopefully it does happen. We are still in a very good position.

“It will mean we have won the Premier League and we will all be very happy but then we can look to the future – and whenever fans are allowed back into the stadium, I am sure we will have some sort of celebration together.”
