A recent report has declared that the Premier League are discussing the next steps for tackling the spreading of coronavirus in English football after Leicester City players have been the latest to show symptoms of the virus.
According to The Times, the top flight of English football will soon be set to play the remainder of the league games behind closed doors, with no bars or clubs airing any fixtures to avoid congregation.
It’s a hot talking point amongst football fans as many discuss the uncertainty of how the Premier League will play out the remainder of its course. Many Everton fans are also speculating over the decision to play in front of empty stadiums, with many fans branding it a ‘joke’. Others are simply scoffing and calling the whole thing ‘disgraceful’.

Play them in a training ground. What’s the point home team has no advantage. Turning into a farce.

What’s the point of football without the fans? At least Liverpool’s championship season will always be associated with a global disaster with no parade to follow. Hahaha

Behind closed doors isn't right. It's unfair to Everton to not allow an atmosphere to get the players pumped.

As PSG fans did last night, fans will likely gather at the ground anyway. Totally defeats the object of this, you either need to let fans in or call games off.
