- The sides fighting relegation are against the resumption of the PL season as they are afraid of going down.
- They have been told their best chance of stay in the league is winning the remaining games, it is claimed.
- PL teams who want to restart the campaign have threatened Aston Villa, B'mouth and Norwich that relegation could be imposed by a majority vote.
As per the Daily Mail, other top-flight teams have informed the bottom-table trio that the Premier League want to hold a vote regarding relegation in case the current campaign is scrapped.
This implies that the Canaries, the Cherries and the Lions will be voted out of the Premiership.
These three sides are supposedly among clubs willing to block the so-called 'Project Restart' aimed at resuming the campaign in June.
Their reasoning is simple: they believe that they won't go down to the Championship if the season is cancelled.
However, they are not the most vocal teams among those standing against the resumption of the campaign. Three teams just above the relegation zone – Brighton, West Ham and Watford – are believed to be 'leading the rebels' as they will lose the most if the current season starts again.
However, relegation could be imposed on Villa, B'mouth and Norwich if they do not agree to continue playing.
Arsenal are said to be in favour of restarting the season as we have a very slight chance of getting into Europe next term if the campaign is cancelled.
The crucial shareholders meeting that will determine the fate of the current Premier League season is scheduled for Monday.
