The Premier League have convened an emergency meeting to take place on Monday as football tries to get to grips with the Omicron wave and Arsenal will be expected to send their captain.
With fixtures falling like a drunk at Christmas, many are wondering if the Premier League is likely to lock down once again.
A meeting will take place on Monday between the Premier League, all clubs and the club captains (who Arsenal will send is anyone’s guess) to discuss likely scenarios, with curbs expected after Christmas.
Should fans be excluded from matches, but football carries on, we will see a return to staggered kick-offs so that every game can be televised by Sky Sports and BT Sport.
There is also some talk that the BBC and Amazon could pick up some of the extra matches.
Last season, the Premier League had to give back £223m to broadcasters due to postponed games and are said to be keen to avoid that this time around.
That means games go ahead.
So, if you were wondering who actually runs football, I think this makes it perfectly clear.
