Arsenal confirm first match with fans for nine months under Tier 2 restrictions

Manchester United will be the first Premier League side to play at home following the relaxation of the national lockdown, but the city’s presence in tier 3 means that the club have been forced to keep Old Trafford closed to the public until coronavirus numbers reduce sufficiently to ease some of the restrictions.

The following round of Premier League action will see West Ham host Manchester United in the first Premier League game to take place with fans since March, which will take place with up to 2,000 inside the London Stadium at 5:30pm on Saturday. Chelsea’s late kick-off against Leeds United will see the same number of supporters allowed into Stamford Bridge.

The north London derby will also take place in front of fans with Spurs able to allow 2,000 supporters inside the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday afternoon, with the same number at Liverpool’s evening kick-off against Wolves and Monday night’s game between Brighton and Southampton at the Amex.

However, games at Aston Villa, Burnley, Manchester City, West Bromwich Albion and Sheffield United will all be held behind closed doors due to tier 3 restrictions.
