Chelsea could yet play their remaining four Premier League home fixtures at Stamford Bridge with clubs said to be keen to play remaining matches home and away rather than at neutral venues according to reports by Sky Sports.
The competition has been suspended since mid-March due to the Coronavirus pandemic but the Premier League are working with the UK government in a bid to complete the season some time after 1 June.
The most recent plans included matches being staged at up to 10 neutral venues to avoid fans from congregating at home stadiums, however, it has now been revealed that Premier League clubs have voted against this option with the majority wanting to maintain home advantage.
Chelsea still have second-placed side Manchester City to face at Stamford Bridge while their five away fixtures include two London derbies and a trip to champions-in-waiting Liverpool. It remains to be seen whether The Blues will play their matches at the intended venues or whether they will be forced to take on all nine opponents on neutral territory.
The Premier League are set to continue discussions with both the participating clubs and the government in the coming weeks as they battle to bring the current campaign to a conclusion.
