The Premier League is considering finishing the season behind closed doors at neutral venues.

The Premier League is suspended until the end of April so discussions are ongoing about playing games at neutral venues in the midlands of England and London.

Teams would be isolated in hotels in June and July and all games being played behind closed doors would be shown on TV.

Meanwhile, Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan says if the season is not completed that it would only be fair to award Liverpool the league title.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have a 25 point lead at the top of the table and are just two wins away from securing the title.
