The Premier League season will resume on June 17th  with Manchester City’s meeting with Arsenal one of the first matches to be played.

Aston Villa’s home clash with Sheffield United is another that will mark the return of the English top flight, with both those matches the two games in hand that were left unplayed prior to the coronavirus pandemic halting football.

A full fixture list will then be played on the weekend of June 19 to 21, with the agreement coming after Premier League clubs met on Thursday to continue discussions over ‘Project Restart’.

The Premier League are hoping to have the 2019-20 campaign wrapped up by August 2, with the FA Cup final then scheduled to take place a week later on the weekend of August 8-9.

The decision was made to temporarily suspend the season back on March 13 after both Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta and Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi had tested positive for Covid-19.

There was initial hope that the Premier League would be able to get back underway in April, although the devastation of the coronavirus pandemic and the uncertainties over the safety and welfare of players, staff and fans led to an indefinite delay.
