‘The club really does put the town on the map and that goes for every one of the 71 other clubs in the football league’

What would the loss of England smaller football clubs mean? To find out, Nick Robinson travelled to Lancashire, to the home of Accrington Stanley to do something no fan is allowed to do - watch them play local rivals Rochdale. He also spoke to the chief executive of Aston Villa, Christian Purslow, ahead of a meeting to discuss controversial plans put forward by Manchester United and Liverpool to reform the Premier League. Those clubs have been accused of exploiting a crisis to accrue more power and money, although head of the English Football League says the plan will save smaller clubs from financial ruin cased by the pandemic. Mr Purslow said it was in his opinion "highly unlikely" that the plan will "get much traction within the Premier League itself." He added: "I think a much broader, long-term plan for football is what I would expect to come from the Premier League."

‘Big Premier Leagues are owned now by billionaires from other countries and England has lost control of its own game’

The former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, says that the Football Association and the Premier League must work together to help smaller clubs survive the pandemic. Proposals led by Liverpool and Manchester United to radically reform the structure of English football have been criticised by the Premier League and the government -- despite including the promise of greater financial support for Football League clubs. Speaking to Nick Robinson, Arsene Wenger said ministers could need to intervene if the top teams failed to agree a plan: “Big Premier Leagues are owned now by billionaires from other countries and England has lost control of its own game. The whole situation maybe needs politics involved at the highest level, to sort it out.”

'We were told we were going into Tier 3, no ifs, no buts. We can either expend energy on that or try and get a better deal'

New local lockdown rules for England are due to be announced later today. The Liverpool City Region is expected to face the tightest restrictions under a new "three-tier" system, which will classify regions as being on "medium", "high" or "very high" alert. Steve Rotheram, the city region's mayor, told Nick Robinson: "What we are trying to do is to see whether we can get support and the support package for the businesses in our city region that will be affected by the Government's decision." He added there is little they can do to challenge the decision: "We were told we were going into Tier 3, no ifs, no buts. We can either expend energy on that or we can try and get a better deal. Some people like to shout at the wind but if they can't change the direction of the wind it is important to shield people from its effects." With BBC Political Editor Laura Kuenssberg and Leader of Manchester City Council, Sir Richard Leese.
