And it remains unclear when the top-flight will resume, with chiefs to hold talks on Thursday to decide the outcome of the season.

In a bid to keep their fans entertained, some clubs took to playing games on Saturday during the time they should have been in action.

Watford tweeted out a Football Manager simulator of their scheduled clash against Leicester, while Southampton and Manchester City engaged in a game of noughts and crosses.

And Hull were embroiled in a European battle against Bayer Leverkusen as their two Twitter admins played a game of Connect Four.

One Twitter user took a screenshot of their final result, and superimposed the image in front of the Sky Sports touchpad.

With pundits Jamie Carragher and Jamie Redknapp stood either side of the screen, the person tweeted: “Super Sunday today.”

Another fan spoke of their need to watch football today, as he commented: “I would kill right now for a Sky Super Sunday of Burnley v Norwich.”
A third quipped: “I’d even consider an England international friendly.”

One joked: “A Super Sunday of Watford vs Burnley doesn’t sound so bad now does it.”

Another stated: “Super Sunday… never thought I’d miss you as much… I’d even watch a Watford vs Newcastle… that’s how much I am missing you.”

Speaking of their sadness of no football, one tweeted: “I’m so confused Sunday with no football! No game myself this morning?

“No super Sunday! I’ve resorted to watching rugby league! Why isn’t that cancelled???
