At least six of the remaining Premier League games could be played at neutral venues, it is reported.

Top-flight clubs yesterday agreed to restart the season on June 17, subject to safety conditions being met due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, but the prospect of some of the 92 matches being switched to neutral grounds is still to resolved.

Mail Online is reporting the police have identified six ‘high risk’ matches, with fears fans may gather near grounds and breach lockdown rules.

Four of these involve champions-elect Liverpool; their games at Manchester City, Newcastle United, the Merseyside derby at Everton plus the game which takes Jurgen Klopp’s men to the title.

It is also reported there are concerns about Manchester City v Newcastle and Manchester United’s home game with Sheffield United.

There are currently no fixtures involving the relegation-threatened clubs, including Watford, that have been identified as 'high risk', but the Mail reports this may change if the restarted season results in ‘crunch matches’ in the battle for survival which may attract fans outside of grounds.

Proposals were initially drawn up to play all matches at neutral venues, but this was dismissed out of hand.
