Tony Bloom believes Premier League relegation is “unfathomable” if the season is not completed.

But he would not be against using a points-per-game calculation to confirm Liverpool as champions or even to decide European places.

Premier League clubs remain intent on finishing their season, despite a halt of six weeks and counting due to coronavirus.

If it does not happen, Bloom does not believe teams should lose their precious top-flight status.

Bournemouth, Aston Villa and Norwich currently occupy the relegation places.

But the Cherries are only in the drop zone on goal difference and Villa have a game in hand on their rivals.

Points-per-game calculations would not change the bottom three as things stand.

Albion chairman Bloom said: “I think it’s very difficult to relegate somebody if the season is not completed.

"But I don’t want to prejudice what other discussions we may have.

"We haven’t really talked about that at all. But I do think it would be very difficult to relegate somebody, particularly from the Premier League if the season hasn’t played out.”

He added: "I just don't think it's fathomable that a team which is not allowed to play out the season, may lose out on point-two-of-a-point based on this system.

“Also, it does not take into account the strength of the team you have not played.

“You may get a title winner, obviously Liverpool deserve it.

“You may use that criteria for European qualification.

“But I do not see how anyone can vote for that, certainly the percent needed, for teams to get relegated. I really cannot foresee that.”
