Aston Villa CEO Christian Purslow is against playing the remaining Premier League matches on neutral pitches.

"We are a club that is proud of its domestic form. We have six home games left. Every fan of our club would agree that giving up this benefit is unacceptable, "Purslow told Talksport. The villa is currently ranked 19th on the table with the 28 matches played.
Richard Bevan, CEO of the Association of League Managers, announced that the 2019/2020 Premier League season could be canceled if clubs did not agree to play in neutral venues. The vote on the proposals to return to football will take place on Monday.
The management of Brightom also disagreed, "We do not agree with the idea of ​​using neutral places, as this can affect the integrity of the league." West Ham managers also agreed. On the other hand, the number of clubs that agree with the proposal to play on neutral surfaces under the conditions of removing the threat of decline is growing.
"At the bottom of the table is a much smaller income base and the risk of a downturn carries a disaster of GBP 200 million for each club that could still fall mathematically," Purslow said.
