Premier League board are now planning to restart the English topflight division on June 12 in which all the remaining games of the season will be played behind closed doors.
But that will be if the Government of the United Kingdom should agree for football to return in England.
Should they accept, then all the 20 clubs in the Premier League will play all their games at neutral grounds.
Due to the continuous threat of coronavirus, Premier League board were forced to suspend the topflight so as to prevent the spread of the disease.
And since then, the League body have been deliberating on many ways they can go through for the possibility of the season to restart.
