The English Premier League season is set to restart on 17 June with Aston Villa v Sheffield United and Manchester City v Arsenal, the British media BBC has reported.

The matches are the two games in hand. Thereafter, a full fixture list would then be played on the weekend of 19-21 June.

Premier League Clubs discussed the resumption plan – which is subject to government approval – at a meeting on Thursday and it is understood all agreed in principle.

There are 92 fixtures still to play to end the 2019/2020 season.

The Premier League was suspended on 13 March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Safety guidelines are yet to be issued by the government and decisions will remain subject to the continuing fight against coronavirus.

On Wednesday, clubs unanimously voted to resume contact training, having started non-contact training last week

If 17th is held as restart date, it will be 100 days after Leicester City’s 4-0 win over Aston Villa on 9 March that competition will resume, with games now played behind closed doors.
