Sports Mole looks at which Premier League matches could be played at neutral venues when the season resumes in June.

The Premier League has outlined plans to return on June 17 with two matches - Manchester City vs. Arsenal and Aston Villa vs. Sheffield United.

The first full weekend of action will then take place from June 19-21, including notable fixtures such as the Merseyside derby between Everton and Liverpool and Manchester United's trip to face Tottenham Hotspur.

Liverpool had been due to make the short trip to Goodison Park for the derby, but that is the first of the games deemed "high risk" by local authorities and could therefore be moved to a neutral venue.

The Premier League are yet to officially confirm which games will be held at neutral venues, but as many as six are deemed to be high enough risk - including four Liverpool matches.

Jurgen Klopp's champions-elect could benefit from that, though, with trips to Everton, Manchester City and Newcastle United being moved off away turf and onto neutral territory.

As yet there are no plans for Liverpool to play games away from Anfield unless they have the chance to win the title in a home game, in which case it will likely be moved to prevent fans from congregating outside the stadium.
