Liverpool fans are concerned they may not get to lift the Premier League trophy at the end of the season.

Liverpool fans are furious with US President Donald Trump’s recent airstrike in Iraq, which killed Iranian general Qasem Soleimani. On Thursday, January 2, the United States killed Soleimani in a targeted drone strike at Baghdad Airport.

The killing of Soleimani, whom the US government insist posed a major threat to the lives of American soldiers and citizens, has prompted huge concerns in the Middle East and across the globe.

The Iranian government has promised “harsh vengeance” for the slaying of Soleimani, who was the right-hand man of their supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Iran’s vow to exact revenge for Soleimani’s death has sparked fears of further destabilisation in the Middle East and even a third World War.

And a small section of Liverpool fans believe it could very well scupper their pursuit of the Premier League trophy, which they look odds on to lift at the end of the season.

“Can we avoid World War three until after this premier league season #LFC #worldwar3,” tweeted one Reds fan.

Another said: “When you've waited 30 years for Liverpool to win the league but wake up to find Trump has pretty much started World War 3.”

“Liverpool not winning the league because of world war will be the most Liverpool thing ever,” tweeted another.

One irked Kopite said: "Actually f**k off. Trump starting World War 3 just so Liverpool never win a title.”

“Why is it that it is when Liverpool is looking like carrying EPL that world war 3 want to start bayi?” asked one frustrated fan of the Merseyside club.

“Man city win, WWIII did not start. It is now when it is Liverpool turn.”

One fan called on Trump to hold off escalating tensions with Iran until the end of the season, saying: “If Trump could hang fire on World War III until the end of April, Liverpool could be World Champions, European Champions and Premier League Champions for the rest of eternity...... Every cloud.”

Another even called for the Premier League to hand the Reds the trophy on account of their 13 point lead at the top of the table.

The fan wrote: “EPL Board should convene and hand Liverpool 2019/2020 EPL trophy before this world war 3 bullshit. We waited way too long to steal our joy.”

One Reds fan, however, was confident the Merseysiders would still win the league if a third World War did break out.

They wrote: "Liverpool the strongest they’ve been in decades. World war 3 come at me bro
