Lampard wants Premier League start extended – September 12 too early

Frank Lampard has pleaded with the Premier League for clubs still playing in Europe to push back the start of the 2020-21 season.

Lampard’s Chelsea is traveling to meet Bayern Munich on Saturday’s final 16 of the Champions League, though with minimal expectations to reach the quarter-finals as they face a 3-0 deficit from the first leg of February.

Manchester City plays Real Madrid at Etihad Stadium 24 hours earlier, 2-1 to the advantage and with a more probable tilt in playing in Lisbon ‘s final on August 23.

Manchester United and Wolves remain in the Europa League, which will end in Cologne on 21 August.
