The Premier League will return on 17 June – three months after the 2019-20 season was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
No matches have been played since Leicester City’s 4-0 win over Aston Villa on 9 March.
Fixtures that were due to have been played just days later were postponed after Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta tested positive for coronavirus on 13 March, leaving the campaign in limbo.

June 12 restart date for Premier League looking increasingly unlikely. Vote on contact training due on Wednesday (expected to pass), wider PL shareholders’ meeting on Thursday. Many variables but June 19 or June 26 for resumption more likely as it stands. https://t.co/8iZxH4MK8G
