It has been announced that some matches in the Premier League - which will resume on June 17 - will take place at neutral venues due to police concerns that they would spark a large gathering of people around stadiums.

This includes the clash between Everton and Liverpool when Jurgen Klopp’s side could secure the Premier League title.

Though it has yet to be confirmed whether or not any of the EFL divisions will resume, the organising body has moved to state it is the intention that league matches will take place at home grounds.

That is unless local councils and police raise any objections to the hosting of matches.

An EFL spokesman said: “It remains our intention to play all remaining league matches at clubs’ home grounds as long as they comply with the relevant government guidance.

“We will only seek to move matches if they are no permitted by the relevant local authority, following any representations from the local police force.”

The majority of League One clubs are expected to vote to curtail the season, though there is strong opposition from a group of clubs that are determined to play on.

The EFL board have declared their intent to hold a four-team play-off in each division to determine the final promotion winner, as normal. As this has yet to be agreed on by the clubs, there are no details over the format and potential venues for play-off matches.
