The Premier League has been suspended since March 9 due to the coronavirus pandemic that has halted football activities ever since.

However, the league body is making plans to see how the season can be wrapped up in the best possible way that will still ensure the safety of the players and staff involved.

The Premier League have circulated a proposed timetable known as the ‘Project Restart’ for the clubs to return to action in June but the League’s body may face some resistance from certain Premier League clubs.

According to the Mirror, six relegation-threatened clubs namely Watford, West Ham, Brighton, Aston Villa, Bournemouth and Norwich City have serious concerns over the plans to resume the season.

All Premier League clubs will reportedly vote on Friday to determine whether the season can be finished at neutral venues, with majority rooting for the league to resume with the plans proposed by the Premier League.

The remaining league games will be staged behind closed doors at neutral venues and under strictly controlled conditions, with the players and officials set to be tested for Covid-19 at least twice a week to minimise the risk of infection.

Meanwhile, the Premier League may also experience some resistance from players, as players don’t seem to be too keen on resuming football activities until the pandemic is finally over.
