The Premier League season has been suspended until April 30 at the very earliest as the United Kingdom battles through the coronavirus outbreak (BBC).
There is a lot of uncertainty surrounding when the Premier League may actually resume with reports suggesting that the date is likely to be pushed back even further.
News emerged on Saturday that plans to conclude the season over a four-to-six week period in July, with games being played behind closed doors, were being discussed by the Premier League (Independent).
Football.London now reports that plans were reached over a conference call between football’s governing bodies and the government on Saturday. The idea is to complete all remaining games so that next season can begin as scheduled.
With the Lilywhites having nine games left, it would take them four weeks to complete all of their fixtures, assuming that they played every weekend and midweek.
If the season resumes at the start of July, here’s how Tottenham’s fixture could look, according to Football. London:
Wednesday, July 1 – Man United (h)
Saturday, July 4 – West Ham (h)
Wednesday, July 8 – Sheffield United (a)
Saturday, July 11 – Everton (h)
Wednesday, July 15 -Bournemouth (a)
Saturday, July 18 – Arsenal (h)
Wednesday, July 22 – Newcastle (a)
Saturday, July 25 – Leicester City (h)
Wednesday, July 29 – Crystal Palace (a)
Spurs Web Opinion:
Since all games are likely to be played behind closed doors in neutral venues, no team will enjoy home advantage. This will be a blow to us as all of our difficult fixtures among the final nine were home games. It will be a massive ask for us to make up the required number of points to qualify for the Champions League.
