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.

The first games to be played upon the league’s resumption will see Aston Villa host Sheffield United, while Manchester City welcome Arsenal.

Both of those matches had originally been postponed due to domestic cup ties, and every club will have played 29 league games once they are completed.

Every team will then be left with nine games to play, with dates for further fixtures – which will all be played without supporters in the stadiums – still to be confirmed.

All 92 matches will be broadcast live across Sky Sports, BT Sport, BBC Sport and Amazon Prime.
