Liverpool look likely to be allowed to lift the title at Anfield as Premier League chiefs are 'confident' of avoiding using neutral venues.
Each top-flight club has received a written letter from Premier League executive director Bill Bush, who says a maximum of only four matches will need to be held away from home grounds.
The National Police Chiefs' Council football lead officer Mark Roberts last week named six fixtures which were of concern.
One of the fixtures was the Merseyside derby, which is due to be Liverpool's first game back.
Police were fearful fans would congregate around Goodison Park and Anfield if Liverpool are in a position where they can seal their title win in their first game back against Everton.
Liverpool's next game at home to Crystal Palace is also a possible title-clincher, and was included on Roberts' list.
However Merseyside Police have informed the Premier League they feel they will be able to handle matches in the local area.
Bush outlined this in his letter, and added that two other police forces – Greater Manchester and Northumbria – could follow Merseyside's lead, as they continue to monitor their situation.
Of their three matches up for discussion, Greater Manchester police are preparing for Man City v Newcastle and Man Utd v Sheffield Utd to go ahead as planned.
Their only concern is the Man City vs Liverpool clash, which depending on other results could prove to be a title decider.
Northumbria Police are also apprehensive over Liverpool's trip to Newcastle on the final day of the season, though it is likely that any title coronation, if permitted, would occur at Anfield the week prior.
Bush's letter read: "Merseyside Police released a further statement on Friday that, in their view, the Premier League matches scheduled for their area were within their capacity to cover.
"From further enquiries, I understand that the process of review continues at the other two local police forces which had previously requested fixtures be moved.
