A group of Liverpool supporters have taken to social media to react to some comments from Watford striker Troy Deeney on how the club’s expected title win would be remembered. The Premier League was suspended back in March due to the global pandemic, at a time when Jurgen Klopp’s side were just two wins away from being crowned champions of England for the first time since the 1989/90 season.

Deeney has been very vocal in the media about his opposition to the proposed return of football and earlier this month told his club he would not return to training due to concerns regarding the health of his son. However, he appears to have upset the Anfield faithful with some of his latest comments. Speaking to CNN Sport regarding the Premier League title, the 31-year-old said: “It’s still going to be the year spoiled by the pandemic. It’s not going to be that year Liverpool won the league being the best team.”

2018/19 season quiz: How many points did Jurgen Klopp's side accumulate in the Premier League?

Here is how some of the club’s supporters have responded on Twitter after the quotes were shared via @AnfieldEdition.

Are Troy Deeney's comments out of order?

Yes

Yes

No

No

It’s clear from the above responses that these Liverpool fans completely disagree with the Premier League forward’s comments. Deeney’s Watford currently find themselves hovering dangerously above the drop zone in 17th place. Nigel Pearson’s side and Bournemouth are separated only by goal difference and in response to these comments, more Reds fans expressed their desire to see the Hornets relegated.

Liverpool are 25 points clear at the top of the table and therefore in our view, whatever else this season ends up being remembered for, the vast majority will certainly remember it as the year the Reds were the best team.
