Which order they are played in has not been confirmed but matches will kick-off midweek at 6pm and 8pm.

Are matches being played at neutral grounds?

Police have set out the Premier League matches they would like to be played at neutral venues, which would include any Liverpool game where the title could be won.

The matches which have been requested to take place at neutral grounds are Manchester City v Liverpool, Manchester City v Newcastle, Manchester United v Sheffield United, Newcastle v Liverpool and Everton v Liverpool.

The police statement adds that ‘the game in which Liverpool could secure the league title’ should also be moved, but this may end up needing to be more than one match if the Reds did not clinch it at the first attempt.

However, no decision has been finalised and Liverpool still hope to play home games at Anfield.

What is the TV schedule?

Every single one of the remaining 92 games will be shown live across Sky Sports, BT Sport, Amazon Prime and BBC.

However, nothing has been announced about which games will be shown on which as yet.

Sky Sports will have 64 games, with four on the BBC. 25 of Sky Sports’ games will be shown free-to-air.
