Premier League clubs in Liverpool and London will be able to welcome fans back into their stadiums.

This follows the UK Government’s announcement on which tiers of different areas of the country will be in after the end of the second lockdown.

Topflight clubs like Manchester City, Manchester United, Aston Villa and Leicester will be unable to have fans back.

Supporters of Newcastle, Leeds, Sheffield United, West Brom and Wolves will also have to wait longer, before any of them can cheer their teams inside their grounds.

Greater Manchester is among the areas that will remain in Tier 3, which is classified as ‘Very High’ risk and the only tier which does not allow any fans to attend matches.

Merseyside has dropped down to Tier 2, meaning Liverpool and Everton can welcome back 2,000 supporters into their stadiums.

London has been named as a Tier 2 area, which places it in the ‘High’ risk category.

That means up to 2,000 Gooners will be able to attend the Europa League match with Rapid Vienna at the Emirates on December 3.

The new regulations come into effect on Wednesday, December 2.
