Liverpool are hurtling towards a unique moment of sporting history.

With the Reds returning to Melwood this week, the Premier League's 'Project Restart' took its most significant step forward yet in the aim of getting elite football back up and running.



Liverpool, alongside their top-flight counter-parts, re-opened the doors of their training base to welcome back their stars after a two-month long absence.



It was the most evident development yet that the Premier League will have as satisfactory a conclusion as possible in these most strange and unprecedented of times.

Football will eventually return in this country and while it is a far from a perfect prospect, the Reds are on course for a moment they have craved.

One they have chased with vigour since the first week of August. One that has eluded them for over 30 years.

A title drought that has lasted a generation will soon be over with just six points from nine games needed for Liverpool's name to be carved onto the Premier League trophy for the first time.

Twenty-seven wins from 29 games have put Jurgen Klopp's side in front with an unassailable 25-point advantage. They are champions in all but name, now.

And still, it will not have been imagined this way.

For Jordan Henderson, Virgil van Dijk and every other player whose outstanding performances have dragged the Reds to within an inch of the title, the prospect of lifting the trophy coveted more than any other at this football club, in front of precisely zero supporters, will be surreal.

Klopp and his players deserve to have the Premier League etched onto their respective honours' lists. They have been streets ahead of the competition all season.

But the bizarre prospect of a trophy parade behind a closed Anfield door will naturally singe the elation from a fans' perspective.

How could it not?

In these imperfect times, however, the only thing Liverpool can do is make sure it is their name on the trophy. The remaining complexities are simply out of their hands.

As Klopp likes to profess, it is only solutions he is interested in, so it is doubtful that factors beyond their control have been aired in team meetings over the last two months.

Instead, the focus for the players and coaches has been about keeping fit, ensuring they are in the best possible position to profit when the green light is signalled for football's return. Whenever that may be.

But just what will that inability to share these career-defining moments with their supporters do to Klopp's fabled 'mentality monsters'?

How will a team that responded to missing out on the title after 97 points by winning the Champions League react to this development?

And just what impact will that supporter-less celebration have on a squad who had previously shrugged off heartbreak to go again and win 27 of 29 games?

Given all the evidence, it is fair to suggest that it is only likely to spur Liverpool on to greater heights next time around.

The Premier League is on the brink of being conquered, but an absence of their own inside Anfield may just be the fire needed for the belly next season.

Liverpool will become the hunted next term, but even as the impending champions of England, the Reds may be driven by the desire to have what they will miss out on this year.

So while some rivals may take some glib, joyless satisfaction out of Reds supporters being unable attend their biggest event since 1990, don't bet against Klopp's players using it as fuel.
