Premier League club leaders are cherishing a plan to “rescue” the Premier League this season when there are still 92 matches yet.
How will the Premier League this year “rescue” the remaining 92 matches?
UEFA has decided to postpone Euro 2020 until next summer in an effort to cope with the COVID-19 epidemic, and to allow national tournaments to fulfill their schedules.
Facing unpredictable movements of the global corona virus storm, Premier League clubs fear that English football may not finish the remaining schedule if the situation is worst.
As a result, the leaders had the overall plan to play all the remaining 92 matches in the stadium without spectators in neutral venues at a separate time and be broadcast live.
In the proposal, there will be 2 or 3 venues for matches that will most likely be in the Midlands, central England.
As expected, the clubs will make this revolutionary proposal at a crisis settlement meeting for the Premier League tomorrow.
If approved by the government, matches in the Premier League this season can take place in more locations and each team plays every 3 days to ensure progress.
Using only a limited number of stadiums will help reduce the number of medical and police personnel needed to a minimum.
Neutral venues also help to avoid home fans appearing in matches as happened outside of PSG’s victory over Dortmund in the Champions League.
Currently Man City, Arsenal, Aston Villa and Sheffield United have the remaining 10 matches in the Premier League this season, while other teams have 9 games.
Which Premier League club will vote to cancel the season that Liverpool opposes?
According to the British press, the imposition of any rule changes in the Premier League this season needs to have two-thirds of the votes, the equivalent of 14 clubs.
So, in the event that a vote is needed to cancel the season immediately due to the COVID-19 epidemic, which clubs will support it? Givemesport has conducted a capacity analysis.
Arsenal (9th): Cancel the season
Despite the recent progress, Arsenal may still want to cancel the season, instead of betting on the chance to win tickets to the Champions League in the remaining 9 matches.
Aston Villa (19th): Cancel the season
Aston Villa still has 2 games in hand but the 19th with the risk of actually being relegated makes them consider this season worthless.
Bournemouth (18th): Cancel the season
If everything stays the same, Bournemouth will be relegated so they will definitely vote for the cancellation of the season.
Brighton (15th): Cancel the season
Brighton is currently 2 points above the relegation zone and faces a tough race in the remaining 9 matches, so it is possible to vote.
Burnley (10th): End of the season
Burnley is in good shape, only 4 points from the 6th position of the European Cup so of course, he wants to continue to pursue.
Chelsea (4th): Cancel the season
Chelsea is one of the clubs holding the key to voting. The cancellation of the tournament means their 3rd place from the season will guarantee a place in the Champions League.
The Premier League this season, MU is only three points behind them in the race for the fourth place overall – although the top five may be sufficient when Man City is banned from attending the European Cup.
Crystal Palace (11th): End of the season
Palace is safe in the relegation race and on a par with Burnley, meaning the chances of attending Europe are still wide open.
Everton (12th): Cancel the season
With 37 points, Everton’s chances of attending the European Cup are slim. Therefore, canceling the season and making rivals Liverpool unbeatable seems to be their top priority.
Leicester (3rd): End of the season
Leicester is more likely to guarantee the Champions League rate and they will oppose the cancellation of the Premier League this season because it makes their efforts wasted.
Liverpool (first): End of the season
Liverpool naturally wants to end the season when they are only 2 wins away from the championship.
Man City (2nd): Cancel the season
Man City is very motivated in the Premier League but if they have a chance to retain their trophy, they will definitely choose that.
Man Utd (5th): End of the season
MU does not know whether the 5th position will win tickets to the Champions League next season or not. Therefore, they will want to end the season and try to beat Chelsea to fourth.
Newcastle (13th): Cancel the season
Newcastle is 8 points above the relegation zone in the remaining 9 matches. But since there’s nothing safe by the end of the season, they can choose to cancel.
Norwich (20th): Cancel the season
6 points away from the safety zone and almost relegating as the season continues, that’s why Norwich will vote.
Sheffield United (Saturday): End of the season
It will be extremely devastating when the great season of Sheffield United is eliminated. They are 5th and only 2 points behind Chelsea if they win the match.
Southampton (14th): Cancel the season
7 points above safety, but like Newcastle, Southampton will not dare to risk with the rest to ensure their relegation.
Tottenham (8th): Cancel the season
Jose Mourinho has admitted he wants the season to end quickly. Tottenham finished 8th with 7 points less than Chelsea so canceling the tournament means they will return to the Champions League.
Watford (17th): Cancel the season
Only ranked in the relegation zone thanks to goal difference, so it is understandable that they want to end the season here.
West Ham (16th) Cancel the season
The vice president of West Ham has insisted on the Premier League this season should be canceled. That’s because the team is standing right above the relegation zone.
Wolves (6th): End of the season
Wolves are just 5 points away from Chelsea and will surely win tickets to the Europa League next season so there is no reason to cancel.
Based on this calculation, there will be 7 clubs want to end the season and 13 clubs against. That means teams that support the cancellation of the Premier League this season need an extra vote.
