Six Premier League games to be played at neutral venues at police request including Liverpool vs Everton

TOFF LUCK

SIX Premier League games will be played at neutral venues due to a request from the police.

Liverpool's clash against Everton - which could see Jurgen Klopp's side secure the title - is one of the matches included.

It has been confirmed this week that the Premier League will finally return on Wednesday 17 June.

Following discussions between Premier League bosses and the police, a handful of games will take place in neutral grounds.

Deputy Chief Constable Mark Roberts said: "Our discussions with the Premier League throughout this process have been positive, with a shared focus on the priority of public health.

"As such we have reached a consensus that balances the needs of football, while also minimising the demand on policing.

"The majority of remaining matches will be played, at home and away as scheduled, with a small number of fixtures played at neutral venues, which, contrary to some reports, have yet to be agreed.

"The views and agreement of forces which host Premier League clubs have been sought and where there were concerns, the Premier League has been supportive in providing flexibility in arranging alternative venues where requested."
