A few numbers of Premier League matches could be streamed live and for free on YouTube when the 2019-20 restarts in a matter of weeks.

The English topflight has been on hold since the middle of March due to the deadly coronavirus currently ravaging the world.

This measure is considered to ensure that fans catch a glimpse of every action on the pitch since they will not be allowed into match venues in a bid to further stop the spread of COVID-19.

The publication reports that most of the fixtures will beam live on Sky Sports and BT Sport, who hold the bulk of the existing broadcasting rights.

However, YouTube was brought into the equation because they are not planning to put any live match on terrestrial television as reported by The Sun.
