What to expect from Premier League meeting Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham can’t attend

Fourteen Premier League clubs are set to hold a meeting this morning (Tuesday) in response to the European Super League announcement.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, along with the three other breakaway clubs, will not be attending the meeting, which will instead be hosted by sides not involved in the European Super League plans.

Here is what to expect from the meeting.

What is up for debate?

Premier League CEO Richard Masters is set to chair the meeting, with the 14 inviting clubs discussing the Super League announcement.

The clubs will likely assess the best way to respond to the announcement as a league.

Interestingly, the 14 clubs have enough power on their own to take action over the six rebel clubs, provided they are in unanimous agreement.

Premier League rules mean there is a threshold of 14 clubs voting in favour in order to pass any major change to the division or the laws.

Reports have claimed that the rebel clubs could face expulsion from the Premier League, or a points deduction, but it seems unlikely that this will be decided in the meeting.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish played down the prospect of this being an immediate result of Tuesday’s meeting.

He said: “We’d have to talk about that and I’d have to take advice from the Premier League.

“I didn’t swallow the rule book of the Premier League and I don’t know the powers but in the end, if they have the authority to run off and start their own league and cancel the agreement with us, then I’m sure the rest of us have the authority to start our own one as well.
