And now, further light has been shed of which Premier League clubs will be able to open their gates to spectators with the government announcing the different segregation of cities under the tier system. All the ongoing regulations will be revisited and evaluated by the government on December 16.
As per the new guidelines, clubs in Liverpool, London and Brighton would all be allowed to entertain people inside stadiums for the gameweek commencing December 4.
Unfortunately, matches in Manchester, Birmingham, Newcastle, Leeds and Wolverhampton all come under the ambit of tier 3 restrictions which will continue to leave these clubs devoid of spectators.
Brighton play Southampton, Chelsea are at home to Leeds, champions Liverpool take on Wolverhampton at Anfield while West Ham Manchester United visit them. Arsenal will become the first Premier League club to see supporters make a foray for their Europa League encounter against Rapid Vienna on Wednesday next week.
