The Premier League has contingency plans in the event the fixture between Leicester and Crystal Palace needs to be postponed or moved.
The Premier League has "contingency" plans for staging Leicester's home fixture with Crystal Palace given the enforced local lockdown in the city.
Leicester are scheduled to host Palace on Saturday but a spike in coronavirus cases has seen stricter lockdown measures imposed in the city.
Premier League chief executive Richard Masters said the game could be moved or postponed to a later date if needed.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the game will go ahead.
But he did not state where and Masters said the Premier League must be "cautious and careful" in light of the UK's first local lockdown.
Masters said: "If what is happening in Leicester, we are waiting to hear, does affect the club's ability to host home games, either this Saturday against Crystal Palace or subsequent matches, then we have contingency to put those matches elsewhere or postpone them until a date when it is safe to do so.
"Of course contingency plans are discussed and part of our overall planning.
"I am yet to understand what the impact of the partial lockdown in Leicester is going to have on the club but clearly it demonstrates the fragile project we have on here. We cannot take it for granted."
