1. Clubs will be having serious issues with players match fitness and may be unwilling to play when the league resumes as players in most cases are not currently training due to the widespread of the Coronavirus.

2. With the suspension of Leagues due to Coronavirus outbreak, some players such as Willian, Adam Lallana and others may have their contracts expired before the close of the season as the league period will be extended beyond the planned end of season due to the current suspension, such players may not be eligible to play for their clubs in some remaining games of the season.

3. If the League could not continue, the current league leaders may be crowned champions, which many other teams will not be happy about and the three bottom teams may also go to relegation, really unpleasant.
