Sheffield United refuse to follow Liverpool in major Premier League decision

Sheffield United are reportedly the only one of the other nine clubs in the Premier League's top 10 who haven't called for Manchester City to be barred from entering the Champions League during their appeal process.

City were banned from European football for the next two seasons following a UEFA ruling last month, but they immediately voiced their intention to appeal the verdict to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

That process is still ongoing, but with the ongoing coronavirus crisis now taking precedence around the world, the case has been shelved for the time being.

City's Premier League rivals fear that this will lead to the the appeal process becoming long-winded, with Pep Guardiola's men ultimately allowed to play in the Champions League next season whenever the 2020/21 is deemed fit to start.

The Mail Online report that Liverpool, Leicester, Chelsea, Manchester United, Wolves, Tottenham, Arsenal and Burnley have all written to the same law firm requesting that City's punishment is still in place during the appeal, with that law firm then presenting the letters to CAS.

City's absence from European football would open up an extra European place for the Premier League whenever the current season can finish, but the seventh-placed Blades have decided to stay out of the conversation.
