The Premier League is all set for a return, with the government in UK allowing matches to be played behind closed doors. And the league on Friday confirmed the fixture schedule for the first three match rounds of the resumed 2019/20 season. The League will restart on Wednesday 17 June if all safety requirements are in place.

It was confirmed last week that due to COVID-19, all matches will take place behind closed doors.

Action will begin with Aston Villa taking on Sheffield United. This will be followed by a blockbuster clash between Manchester City and Arsenal.
