On Friday clubs will discuss the possibility of using neutral grounds to complete the remaining 92 Premier League fixtures, with a further meeting set for next Thursday.

As reported by The Times, the government has suggested keeping the venues of some matches secret from the public for as long as possible in order to prevent supporters from gathering outside stadiums.
