Barclays Premier League Fixtures Table The Premier League has been on hold since mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic, with each club yet to play nine or 10 matches.
In possession of a 25-point lead at the top of the table, Liverpool look nailed on to be crowned champions, but there is plenty to play for with European qualification spots up for grabs and a host of teams battling to avoid relegation.
Barclays Premier League Fixtures Table Project Restart has been in the works for some time as the Premier League attempts to work out how to conclude the season by playing all scheduled matches rather than calling it to a premature halt.
How that works remains to be seen, but the hope is that the league will resume in June and be finished in August.
Barclays Premier League Fixtures Table With plenty of details still to be worked out, including playing matches behind closed doors, here are the remaining fixtures to be played in the season:

  • Who is on the table in Premier? 

    Even as the Premier League make some progress in Project Restart, getting closer to resolving issues such as holding promotion and relegation (with The FA putting their feet down and making it clear that has to happen), and potentially scrapping the idea of neutral venues after increasing opposition from clubs both towards the top and the bottom of the table, several massive points of contention remain.

    One of the biggest, if not the biggest, is the concerns over the health and safety of the players playing a contact game (even if the total amount of close contact is less than one might expect) in the time of a pandemic and a disease with no vaccine that spreads through human contact.

    Unfortunately, if football and/or society wait for a vaccine, we might not have a football or a society to return to.
    So some sort of a compromise solution must be found, just as it must be found in every other walk of life with people like you and I slowly returning to work.
    That will require buy-in and consent from all sides, cool heads, and some reasonable commentary to help grease the wheels. Unfortunately, the English media specialize in unhelpful commentary, and this time it’s not just the tabloids.
    Take the following tweet from the Telegraph, claiming that the Premier League will tell players to “turn your face away when tackled” when they get together on Wednesday to discuss the various issues facing Project Restart.
    That certainly is a ridiculous suggestion on many levels, even if it just a suggestion.
    Except that’s not what the story says. The actual line in the story is “turning their face away when getting up from the challenge and, generally, avoiding face to face contact wherever possible”.
    It’s a minor distinction, but “getting up from a challenge” isn’t the same as “when tackled” especially at first glance.
    The League isn’t advocating turning your head when being tackled or some other silliness. They just don’t want players getting in each others’ faces to minimize face-to-face contact as much as possible (since the virus spreads the best like that).
    But painting the issue as if to make the Premier League into even bigger bungling idiots than they already are is an easy sell. Judging by the retweets and the re-reports, the Telegraph has a hit on their hands — even if, judging by the responses to the tweet, most still haven’t actually read the article.
    Meanwhile, the Premier League now has an ever higher PR mountain to climb.
    Concentrating on the absurd also takes attention away from any potential real concerns over testing (the first trial started this week), over the necessary protocols (following the Bundesliga example, plus every step having to be approved by the appropriate healthcare and government authorities), and the very real possibility that if players aren’t informed correctly — which really should’ve been started a long time ago — we could actually be facing hold-outs or even a strike.

    What is the table for the Premier League?

    Professional Footballers' Association chief executive Gordon Taylor is suggesting that the Premier League should consider having shorter games in order to finish up the 2019-20 season. Taylor, in an interview with BBC Radio 4's "Today," said that under 45-minute halves should be an option to get in all of the remaining matches with the current season needing to be completed at some point this summer. The Premier League has said the idea is off the table, according to BBC Sport. 
    Rick Parry, the English Football League chairman, said there has not been any discussions about shorter games.
    "I don't think we should be ruling out any creative ideas," Parry said. 
    The Premier League is aiming to return by June 8, with the possibility of matches taking place at various neutral venues. If a neutral venue were to be used for various teams, then shorter halves could potentially allow more games to be played. 
    "We don't know the future but we do know what propositions have been put, what ideas have been put -- the possibility of having more substitutes, games possibly not being the full 45 minutes each way, talks of neutral stadiums," Taylor said. 
    "Ideally, you want to keep the integrity of the competition, and of course, that was about playing home and away and having the same squad of players as before it was suspended.
    "The very fact that you are in professional sport, you need to be very resilient. You need to be able to bounce back because you'll get more setbacks than you will good times, and I would like to think that's how my members are."
    The Premier League is expected to meet and further discuss options next week.
    "So it remains in process and we shall just have to wait and see, and look at it on a day-by-day basis and see if it's achievable. But if we don't try, then it's never going to be achievable," Taylor said. 
    "There are lots of points to be made, but above all, can the seasons be completed, and can they be completed safely?"

    How many Premier League games are left?

    MANCHESTER, England (Reuters) - Premier League clubs on Friday discussed possible models for finishing the current season but did not consider a specific date for play to resume while U.K. government lockdown restrictions remain in place.

    Representatives of the 20 teams took part in a conference call to look at various possible options for restarting the season and remain committed to completing the fixtures rather than voiding the season.
    But after the government announced on Thursday that the lockdown would remain in place for at least another three weeks, all options remain hypothetical.
    A Premier League spokesperson said: “Today’s Shareholders’ Meeting provided an opportunity to discuss possible scheduling models. It remains our objective to complete the 2019-20 season but at this stage, all dates are tentative while the impact of COVID-19 develops.
    “In common with other businesses and industries, the Premier League and our clubs are working through complex planning scenarios.
    “We are actively engaging with stakeholders, including broadcast partners, and our aim is to ensure we are in a position to resume playing when it is safe to do so and with the full support of the Government.
    “The health and wellbeing of players, coaches, managers, club staff, and supporters are our priority and the League will only restart when medical guidance allows.”
    There was no discussion during the meeting of the possible complications that could be caused by the season running beyond June 30 — when some player and manager contracts run out.
    World soccer’s governing body FIFA has stated that contracts should be adjusted to reflect the actual end of the season. However, that issue could be open to challenge under English law.
    The Football League (EFL), which represents the three divisions below the Premier League, has said that teams should not return to training before May 16 “at the earliest”.
    Should teams be allowed to train it is expected they would need two-to-three weeks to get prepared for the return to action, making the earliest possible return in June.
    But with the ban on mass public gatherings likely to be one of the last restrictions to be removed, rescheduled games could well be held behind closed doors. (((Uefa Champions League Winners Table)))

    Barclays Premier League Fixtures Table A vote of 14 of the 20 Premier League clubs would be needed to decide how to finish the season, with null and void now completely off the table. The clubs will next meet on May 18, though at that stage it is likely they will still be committed to attempting to finish the season and any vote on how the season could end would come later.
    Here, we take a look through a series of models that have been proposed for the Premier League or used in other competitions, to try to settle matters -- including two different points-per-game formats.
    Barclays Premier League Fixtures Table In all models: Liverpool will be crowned Premier League champions for the first time. Chelsea, Leicester City, and Manchester United go to the Champions League.*If Manchester City wins their appeal against a two-year European ban, they would replace United in the Champions League (who drop to the Europa League group stage).
    Barclays Premier League Fixtures Table What would it mean? Wolverhampton Wanderers and Sheffield United to the Europa League group stage, and Tottenham Hotspur to the second qualifying round. If City win their appeal, Sheffield United drop into qualifying, and Spurs miss out. Relegation is unchanged, with AFC Bournemouth, Aston Villa, and Norwich City down.
    Barclays Premier League Fixtures Table Who else has used this? The Dutch Eredivisie has taken the final table, though a simple points-per-game model would not have altered any positions. The Belgian FA is expected to follow suit on Friday because all teams in its top division have played the same number of games and thus points-per-game isn't relevant.
    Barclays Premier League Fixtures Table What would it mean? Compared to simple PPG, Tottenham would swap places with Arsenal for that possible place in Europa League qualifying. The only other change of note would come in relegation, which would see West Ham United dropped two places from 16th to 18th and into the bottom three, with Bournemouth saved.
    Barclays Premier League Fixtures Table That means bringing PPG vs. WPPG into a vote among Premier League clubs would essentially create an election between Bournemouth and West Ham to stay in the Premier League.
    Barclays Premier League Fixtures Table Who else has used this? It was suggested last week that League One and League Two in England will use this method. This came after it was used to decide the final tables in rugby union's English Clubs Championship (men's levels 3-12).
    Barclays Premier League Fixtures Table Pros: It takes into account home and away from, rather than a more generalized average for each club's form. And after so many clubs argued the importance of home advantage, a vote for weighted PPG would seem logical.
    Barclays Premier League Fixtures Table Cons: It does not factor in the strength of teams still to play. Some have played most of the big six at home (giving them a lower average), whereas others have tough run-ins ahead. For example, Norwich has the lowest home PPG but still has to play Southampton, Everton, Brighton & Hove Albion, West Ham, and Burnley -- all clubs in the bottom half of the table. Brighton, meanwhile, has one of the best home PPGs in the bottom six but must still host Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, and Newcastle. Brighton's home PPG is lower than Aston Villa's, who have six home games

    Barclays Premier League Fixtures Table What would it mean? Compared to simple PPG, the top five would stay the same but only three other positions would be unchanged. Tottenham would climb three spots to take a direct route to the Europa League group stage, while Wolves would have to wait on the results of Man City's appeal for a place in Europe. In the bottom three, West Ham and Watford, who beat Liverpool 3-0 after Feb. 24, would be relegated with Aston Villa and Bournemouth reprieved.
    Barclays Premier League Fixtures Table Eight teams would drop places under this method: Sheffield United, Wolves, Arsenal, Crystal Palace, Southampton. Newcastle United, West Ham, and Watford; it would only need a vote of seven to stop this rollback.
    Barclays Premier League Fixtures Table What would it mean? Compared to simple PPG there would be limited change to the top of the table, with Tottenham and Wolves in the final Europa League places, but some teams would suffer marked drops that would affect Premier League prize money -- each place is worth an extra £2.5 million. Arsenal would drop five places, below Brighton, into 13th while Watford would slip into the relegation zone. Newcastle would go up four places into ninth.

    Barclays Premier League Fixtures Table Seven teams would drop places under this method: Manchester City, Wolves, Arsenal, Burnley, Everton, Southampton, and Watford; so there is a block of votes to prevent it.
    How is it calculated? Only the first time each club has played each other is counted.
    Barclays Premier League Fixtures Table Who else has used this? It was another solution that received some traction but was again rejected, in France.
    Pros: As each team has played each other once, it removes any argument about which teams may have an easier, or more difficult, set of games remaining.
    Barclays Premier League Fixtures Table Cons: It can change a table considerably, and a huge chunk of sporting merit is removed -- such as Watford's remarkable turnaround under Nigel Pearson. It also doesn't factor in which teams have had easier home fixtures in the first round of matches.
