Report: Chelsea could play in front of fans again in August if they beat Arsenal on Sunday

It has been a truly miserable time across the world during the last four months as we collectively fight the global coronavirus crisis.

It has pretty much shut everything down as many countries went into strict lock downs, and football was also shut down as a result.

But as we know, the Premier League have fought hard to get the season finished using strict virus testing on a regular basis. But the sacrifice was that fans were not allowed in the stadium to watch games.

This could soon change, according to a fresh report via The Sun.

Liverpool are set to face the winners of the FA Cup Final between Arsenal and Chelsea on August 29 at the national stadium, and up to 20,000 supporters could be allowed inside to watch the game.

The Sun say that the FA are a long way down the line in talks with the government to allow supporters to watch the game, and this could be a sort of test run for next season rolling out fans back at stadiums.

Having a low amount of fans in the stadium to start with will allow them to observe social distancing still.

Baby steps, but good steps.
