Given the current uncertainty over the resumption of the Premier League, Sports Mole takes a look at how the 1992-93 season would have ended after gameweek 29.

With the coronavirus pandemic having brought a halt to the Premier League campaign, Liverpool have been left waiting to find out whether they will be provided with the opportunity to end their 30-year wait for a league title.

However, many of the 20 clubs in England's top flight face an anxious wait over their own positions, whether that be to do with European qualification or potential relegation to the Championship.

Of course, the current global crisis has caught everyone off guard, resulting in frequent meetings being held between the powers-that-be at their respective organisations. However, it naturally raises the question of what would have happened in years gone by had the Premier League been ended after gameweek 29.

In the first year of the newly-named division back in 1992-93, Manchester United claimed the crown by a 10-point margin to runners-up Aston Villa, with Norwich City and Blackburn Rovers following close behind in third and fourth respectively.

Although the top three remained the same after matchweek 29, United would have only edged out Villa courtesy of possessing a better goal difference after 32 matches. Despite identical records when it came to wins and defeats, United had scored one goal more than the West Midlands outfit and conceded six fewer.

Back in 1993, UEFA only provided English football with three European spots through the Premier League. However, there was a significant change regarding fourth place with Blackburn dropping down to sixth. On the flip side, Sheffield Wednesday would have finished in fourth place, rather than in seventh.

At the conclusion of that season, Nottingham Forest, Middlesbrough and Crystal Palace were relegated to Division One, the latter on goal difference with Oldham Athletic edging the Eagles out by just two goals.

However, it was a different story after gameweek 29 as Oldham occupied 22nd and last place, with Palace up in 18th spot and sitting two points above the relegation zone.

Having recorded 18 points from their last 11 fixtures, the Latics produced one of the underrated revivals in Premier League history as they defeated Villa, Liverpool and Southampton - by a 4-3 scoreline on the final day - in succession to retain their top-flight status.

With regards to the middle of the pack, Liverpool would have ended the season in 14th position, just six points above the bottom three, had the 92-93 campaign been halted after gameweek 29.

Instead, the Merseyside giants finished in sixth position having collected 20 points from their remaining 11 encounters.
