According to The Telegraph, Chelsea are among 12 clubs opposing the Premier League’s plan to resume the season on neutral grounds.

Chelsea believe that clubs should not lose home advantage at a decisive point of the season.

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are also reported to be against the idea of using neutral venues for the league’s restart.

Following Monday’s meeting between all 20 Premier League clubs, Premier League chief executive Richard Masters confirmed clubs are opposed to the idea of using neutral grounds for the league’s restart.

“Just to reiterate that, I think everybody would prefer to play home and away if at all possible,” Masters said on the matter.

“And I think it’s clear to see that some clubs feel more strongly about that than others.

“It is an ongoing dialogue and obviously we’ve been talking to – since Covid-19 became an issue – we’ve been talking to the authorities about the conditions in which we could get the Premier League back up and running and taking all that advice on board.

“But it is an ongoing dialogue. There is not much I can say about that, other than we are in contact with the authorities and listening to that advice while also representing club views in those discussions.”
