Representatives from all 20 English Premier League clubs are set to meet on Friday to discuss more detailed plans for a return to action in early June according to reports by BBC Sport.

The competition has been suspended since early March due to the Coronavirus pandemic but the Government are now keen to work with the English Premier League to help the season resume.

It is understood that a number of matters relating to the potential restart will be discussed at a meeting of the member clubs on Friday. It is thought that the topic of where the remaining games will be played could be considered. It may be that matches are played at home stadiums as normal but behind-closed-doors or neutral venues could be an option.

Chelsea have nine English Premier League games left to play, although just four were scheduled to be staged at Stamford Bridge. The Blues also remain in the Emirates FA Cup, Frank Lampard’s men were drawn away to English Premier League rivals Leicester City in the quarter-finals.

The South West Londoners also have the second leg of their UEFA Champions League last-16 tie against Bayern Munich to reschedule but a decision on that match will be made separately by UEFA in the coming weeks.
