Former FA chairman Greg Dyke has warned that the Premier League will have to be played until it reaches a conclusion. If the Premier League fails to play all the remaining games, clubs could take legal action against the governing body. With the Premier League suspended currently, there are also rumours of a possible cancellation of the English top-flight in order to control the spread of Coronavirus.

The Premier League suspended news broke after a meeting of shareholders in the early hours of March 13 due to Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta testing positive for Coronavirus. The Premier League suspended date until April 4 was unanimously decided upon. Here is the official Premier League suspended statement along with all pro-football leagues in England also facing a suspension.
