Man City Vrs Arsenal To Mark Premier League’s Return On June 17

The Premier League will return on June 17 when Manchester City hosts Arsenal and Sheffield United travels to Aston Villa.

The two-midweek games would take every team up to 29 matches, with the weekend of June 20-21 then set to hold the first full round of fixtures, the Telegraph reports.

After contact training was given the green light earlier this week, clubs have been discussing how the league can restart following its suspension in March due to coronavirus.

Thursday’s meeting covered a range of subjects, including the fixture list and match venues, with a debate about playing games at neutral grounds yet to be resolved.

The report means Premier League managers have three weeks to prepare their squad for a return to action.

The proposal would also see the league finish on the weekend of August 1-2, allowing for the FA Cup final to take place the weekend after.
