Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium and West Ham’s London Stadium are reportedly chosen as the neutral venues in London after a video meeting between Premier League clubs.

According to a report from the Sun, all 20 Premier League clubs have agreed to play the remainder of the season at neutral venues.

The report also claimed the clubs have given the thumbs up to a list of eight stadiums to be used as neutral venues.

It includes the Emirates Stadium and the London Stadium as the capital city base.

The police concerns over using congested urban areas and fans converging in the vicinity of the stadiums, which could lead to the spreading of the coronavirus, are the reason stadiums like Stamford Bridge and Anfield are ruled out.

The report further added that no club will play in their own stadium to try to ensure a degree of equality.


Chelsea still have four home fixtures remaining for the season: against Manchester City, Watford, Norwich City and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Based on the report, Chelsea are likely to play these games at their city rivals’ stadium, although it would also depend on how the scheduling panned out.

Chelsea also have an away fixture against West Ham which would likely be held at the Emirates considering the aforementioned rule.

The clubs reportedly want to reintroduce general training on May 18 and restart the league from June 12.
