Premier League to Return with a Match between Man City and Arsenal on June 17

Two matches, Aston Villa-Sheffield United and Manchester City-Arsenal, are scheduled to restart the Premier League season on June 17, the BBC has learnt.

The matches are the two hand-held games. There are still 92 fixtures to play.

A full list of the immediately next fixtures will then be played on the weekend between 19th and 21st June.

Project restart’s third phase plans include a step towards normal training and building up for competitive games.

Clubs voted unanimously on Wednesday to resume contact training, having begun non-contact training last week.

Clubs are still debating the idea in a Thursday meeting, although it is known that at this point everyone agreed in principle.

Because of the pandemic, the Premier League was suspended on March 13. At the top of the table, Liverpool is actually sitting 25 points clear while Bournemouth, Aston Villa and Norwich City are in the relegation positions.

So far, after 2,752 tests across the league 12 people have tested positive for coronavirus.

Players and staff in the Premier League will continue to be checked twice a week, with the capacity rising from 50 to 60 tests per club for the fourth test round.

Any player or staff required to test positive must isolate themselves for a seven-day period.

It will be exactly 100 days after Leicester City’s 4-0 win over Aston Villa on March 9 that competition will resume, with games now behind closed doors.
