English Premier League (EPL) officials are reported to be mulling plans to complete the season in a five-week period when football is played again, APA reports citing Telegraph.

All 20 teams are expected to play two matches per week over the space of 35 days.

It is hoped that that teams will still use their own stadia, rather than neutral venues, even if all the matches will have to be behind closed doors.

Premier League matches were suspended in March with 16 teams having nine games to play and four with 10 matches, due to COVID-19, a disease caused by the new coronavirus.

The Telegraph further reports that discussions are ongoing as to whether all the 92 Premier League games left to complete the 2019-20 season will be televised.

The FA Cup is yet to be completed and the games will have to be re-scheduled as well.
