The Premier League will resume next season but there will be closed-door games without supporters to reduce the risk of coronavirus. Man Utd, Arsenal, and Spurs set to be the victims of empty stadiums. Although, it has been identified which teams will suffer the most due to lack of support based on meetings with teams on the pitch and fans for points this season.
Norwich City will be the most affected team in the league as 73% of their points this season have come from the influence of their supporters at home.
Only 27 percent of Norwich’s points have come from outside the stadium and the team will be the worst affected when the season starts without support or even on neutral playgrounds.
“Maintaining integrity of the competition”….. but want to play at 10 neutral venues means teams who have played a team away, will lose out playing a home game? But Integrity….. 🤔🙃 @premierleague pic.twitter.com/G7GiWYoy7q

But Southampton has been surprisingly the lowest point in the league this season, with the Saints winning just 39% of the field and 61% of their home games.
Liverpool has won 53% of their points at Anfield this season, with 47% at home. Man City won 54 percent of the points at the Etihad Stadium while 46 percent of them were outside the stadium.
Manchester United earned 63% of its points against Old Trafford in front of its supporters and is one of the teams that will suffer for the Old Trafford fans if they play moderately empty stadiums. Manchester United have received 37% points off the pitch, which could threaten United’s chances of missing out on the good points.
Chelsea is the second team to be considered as safe and comfortable in the open air as they have struggled at Stamford Bridge this season. Chelsea has won 48% of their points at home this season and 52% of them have earned the most points at home.
Arsenal is one of the teams who will find it difficult to play in neutral stadiums with 63% of their points earned at the Emirates Stadium and 38% from outside the stadium.
The implications of this data could lead to a direct impact on the Champions League and Europa League top spot. Here’s a look at the percentage of each Premier League team’s points on the home and away this season and the percentage of points earned by visitors.
NOTE: The green color is the percentage of points earned by the teams in the stadium while the other color is the percentage of points earned by the teams.
If this data is evaluated, Arsenal, Tottenham, and Manchester United’s top competitors could have a negative impact while Chelsea, Wolves, Leicester City, Liverpool, Man City, and Sheffield United will not have much of a negative impact.
