Armchair viewers will be given the option of hearing fake crowd noise when the Premier League returns.

Sky are one of the channels considering using crowd noise during live coverage from games played behind closed doors.

But it is understood Sky - which has several live channels including Main Event and Premier League - could show their games on one channel with crowd noise and without on another.

Even though fans have been sceptical about fake crowd noise - which could be used from the FIFA video game - it has gone down well in the Bundesliga.

BT Sport used it for Borussia Dortmund’s game with Bayern Munich and it was well received rather than hearing the eerie noise of an empty stadium.
