Premier League Games Could Be Less Than 90 Minutes When Football Returns

Premier League Games Could Be Less Than 90 Minutes When Football Returns

PFA chief Gordon Taylor has claimed that Premier League matches could be less than 45 minutes per half when football returns.

The 75-year-old, who also claimed that no matches will be played until mid-June at the earliest, raised the possibility of games being shorter in an interview on BBC Radio 4 on Tuesday morning.

As well as the above, Taylor spoke about teams potentially being able to make more than five substitutions.

In the interview, Taylor opened up about talks of using neutral stadiums. "There's lots of things being put forward," he said. "Try and wait and see what the proposals are."

Last week, it was reported that Premier League clubs have agreed to play at neutral grounds to complete the 2019/20 season once the government approves the plans by football authorities.

Clubs met on a video call on Friday and agreed to use 'eight to ten neutral stadiums' to finish the current campaign which has been heavily affected by the coronavirus crisis.

They confirmed their target of starting training from May 18 with the first set of Premier League fixtures scheduled for June 12.
