The fixtures includes three Liverpool away games to Manchester City, Newcastle and Everton.

The police had earlier issued a statement regarding the possibility of three Liverpool fixtures being played on neutral grounds despite two were identified.

According to the police, Liverpool probably need a win to secure their Premier League crown but explained that the fixture could extend to three if they fail at first attempt.

Premier League chief executive Richard Masters accepts some games may have to take place in neutral venues and says they will look to mitigate some of the issues the police are concerned about.

"It's our preference to play the games where they were originally planned home and away but there are some concerns," Masters told Sky Sports News.

"We'll have a clearer picture in the next seven to 10 days but we hope the amount of games will be low.

"They (the police) have legitimate concerns but we think we can mitigate some of the issues they're trying to deal with. Ultimately we want the season to be played out on the pitch and we're discussing a number of options to make it as fair as possible.

"We'll do everything we possibly can to deliver a trophy presentation. It's really important to mark that moment and to give the fans that memory to mark it."
