Watford striker Troy Deeney has said Liverpool deserve to win this term in the Premier League.
“I’m sad about Liverpool and they deserve to win the title no matter how it turns out. They deserve to get the trophy,” Deeney told CNN. “And I’m sad about Liverpool and their stars and Jordan [Henderson], but there’s no way you should tell in terms of honesty that this is a fair rivalry. It’s about doing a race, 20 odd miles, sitting for two months, and sprinting for the last bit and going: ‘Yeah, that’s a good one.’”
However, he’s sorry that such a win after the coronavirus pandemic will “spoil” them:
“I think it’s gone anyway while talking about integrity of this season.
“But no matter if it turns out, and though we’re playing all the games, it’s anyway going to be the year ruined by the pandemic. That’s not going to be the year when Liverpool dominated the league as the strongest team because, you know, it’s 30 years that they haven’t won yet.”
The Reds had a 25-point over Manchester City and were just two wins away from a championship in the Premier League before the competition was shut down in March owing to Covid-19 break.
Deeney has said that any outcome on Liverpool is unfair, which, in 30 years, is more than worthy of their first English title.
